The Hobie European Kayak Fishing Championship 2021 took place this time in the Dutch Rhine Delta. After two years without this fantastic happening, all participants were thirsting for competition, conviviality, and great catches. It was obvious that SCALE had to be part of this event again!

David´s knack for musky or how to avoid couples therapy
David´s knack for musky or how to avoid couples therapy

When it comes to Musky-fishing, the eyes of many anglers begin to sparkle. Myths and nebulous stories surround that fish of seemingly endless casting. David Holmes takes us out on his Power Drifter to bring light on the tannic waters of his Minnesota rivers. Flyfishing for the elusive musky with 14 inch long bucktail flies might be an exhausting undertaking, but if you manage to seduce a large and beautiful river predator, all pain will be forgtotten quickly. Learn more about the actual flyfishing for musky and what changes this discipline has undergone in recent years.

Deadly Turbines
Deadly Turbines

The pursuit of renewable energy has recently mutated into a political power struggle. So-called clean energies are often unfortunately fraught with problems that attack exactly what we actually want to protect: Nature and the environment.
Countless hydroelectric power plants around the world are becoming death traps for migratory fish, their turbines chopping up everything in their path. And to make matters worse, most of the smaller hydropower plants operate inefficiently and perform no service in providing usable energy. Swiss aquatic ecologist Eva Baier lays charges!

LIGHT ROCK FISHING. The White Sea Breams of the Aegean Sea.
LIGHT ROCK FISHING. The White Sea Breams of the Aegean Sea.

The technique of light rock fishing is by no means an invention of the tackle industry, rather it has its roots as far back as ancient Japan during the Edo period of the 17th-19th centuries! The historian and archaeologist Georg Tyrikos Ergas, who holds a doctorate, is a true specialist in this field and in his sunny homeland of Greece he pursues the busy white sea bream with light tackle. Anyone who would like to take an excursion into the historical background of the LRF will be well catered for with this exciting and informative article!

Flyfishing the Gran Canaria reservoirs
Flyfishing the Gran Canaria reservoirs

Yineth Gil takes us on a journey to the reservoirs of Gran Canaria. More than 14 microclimates provide Gran Canaria with a rich variety of landscapes and fish habitats. Yiya and her Dalmatian Lucky know them all and show us what colourful fishing at the “presas” can look like. The subtropical volcanic island has much more to offer than large concrete tourist development and crowded beaches with red-toned Brits or German tourists in sandals and socks spending their summer holidays over here!

Father feathers and the lost senses
Father feathers and the lost senses

Time flies, time´s up, those were the days…How do we deal with time? How do we perceive it and how do we spend it meaningfully? In general, the sense and our senses! We have lost a large part of our sensuality, perhaps only misplaced it? Together with his daughter, SCALE editor Frank Steinmann sets out on a journey back to the senses and a time that that was seemingly endless.

Flyfishing, Spinfishing, Outdoors, TraveL, Adventure AND MORE…

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!

…Incoomiiing…. This is Rob Hart for SCALE! Rob is a professional photojournalist from Chicago and has little to do with fishing. On the face of it!

1000 CASTS, THAT WAS YESTERDAY ... Hardly any discipline of freshwater fishing has undergone a greater transformation in the last decade than huchen fishing. Once upon a time, catching the secretive large salmonid was reserved only for those who were not afraid of freezing temperatures, nor of extremely tiring casting orgies that were often not crowned with success even after…
