You‘ve heard about Portugal – few rainy days, almost 250 days of sunshine per year. The beaches, the old cities of Lisbon and Porto, the impressive monuments, the lovely countryside and the loveliness of the people.

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.
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!
