THE FUTURE OF EUROPE’S LARGEST UNSPOILT RIVER HANGS IN THE BALANCE

Europe’s largest wild river outside Russia, the Vjosa, is in its greatest danger yet due to political uncertainty and opportunistic greed.

D’une rivière à l’autre!

Matthieu Gentilhomme takes us on a journey through the Dordogne, apart from roads we just follow the slow flow of the water. The Unesco Biosphere Reserve in all its beauty and magic shows what a river can achieve when it is allowed to be a wild river.

Michael Pohl shows us that a holiday on the Seychelles can be more than sipping cocktails and chilling on an air mattress in the pool.

20,000 islands in a nutshell

Finnish photographer Viljami Huhtala and his wife take us on a coastal adventure characterized by gout and spectacular light to pursue the wild sea trout of the Turku archipelago.

SIX QUESTIONS FOR OLIVIER PORTRAT
SIX QUESTIONS FOR OLIVIER PORTRAT

We question angling legend Olivier Portrat, the newly minted CEO of the EFTTA, about what he has to say on subjects such as the current state of European sportfishing, our environment and the economics behind our hobby.

Welcome to scale

We hooked our hearts to SCALE magazine 10 years ago. With the support of great contributing writers and photographers from throughout the fishing world, we started small and, year by year, developed a legion of fishing maniacs who shared our obsession. To all of our hardcore supporters, we thank you, and would like you to join us as we transition from our notorious and well loved flipbook, to a format that can keep us fishing into the future. SCALE will always stick to our stubborn standards of quality writing and photography, and we look forward to another decade of distracting you with big fish, cool stuff, and content pulled in from all over the globe.

WELCOME TO THE NEW SCALE
Cheers and thank you!
