ALPINE ANGLER - a philosophy
More than 19 years ALPINE ANGLER - we are already in our 18th fly fishing season! At the turn of the millennium, the company ALPINE ANGLER was born out of the idea to inspire even more people for the finest way to fish. But even for those who are already fascinated by the best sport in the world, we would like to offer our help. That is to ensure that you are able to enjoy your passion best in these fast days where free time is a real value.
For one, the ALPINE ANGLER Flyfishing school offers you the opportunity to perfect your skills and expand your knowledge. The more a flyfisherman understands the complex relationships in nature and the better he can respond to the situation, the more exciting becomes flyfishing. For the novice our class and seminar program opens up the fascinating world of fly fishing. A guided day is also most effective, showing you a lot about tactics.
On the other, ALPINE ANGLER offers completely organized, hosted fly fishing trips to a selection of sophisticated destinations and world-class waters, that not only give you a special experience but also a lot fun and relaxation.
ALPINE ANGLERS guides on many of the waters in the south of Bavaria in front of the Alps, for a variety of species. But our home water will always be the ISAR River. We also fish a number of other waters in Bavaria. For Lake Trout the Lake Walchensee, the river Singold, Loisach and the famous river Weisse Traun. ALPINE ANGLERS can craft the perfect Bavarian Fly Fishing trip for you.
ISAR River - A jewel runs through the Bavarian Alps
The upper reaches of the Isar river are one of the last wild river landscapes in Europe. The upper river in the so-called "Isar angle" below Sylvenstein reservoir is one of the most beautiful flowing river sections of Bavaria with breathtaking scenery, wide gravel banks and clean water - ideal for fly fishing! The rainbow trout stock can be described as good but brown trout occur as well. Prime fish species however is the grayling, whose existence is gratifying constant thanks to year-round protection. Caddis, mayfly and stonefly imitations, terrestrials and streamers lead to success in the variety of classic riffles, runs and pools of the mostly natural river course.
For guest fishermen there are 2 river sections available - 17 km in total length. Day permits are issued under the condition to stay overnight in the community of Lenggries. Best time to fish is early May to mid July and then especially the fall from early September to mid-November. In mid summer, the fishing action is unfortunately disturbed by (too) many raft, kayak and boat drivers as well as bathers. In general conditions must match because excessive rainfalls - unfortunately not uncommon - lead to prolonged blur of the here otherwise crystal clear river.
WEISSE TRAUN - RIVER
A Gin-clear perl in the front of the Alps. This river is one hour´s drive away in the south of my home base. If the water is higher on the ISAR we can avoid to Weisse Traun river. The water level there is not affected by normal rainfalls. This river offers its anglers a great spot for sight fishing for big Brown and Rainbow Trout. A delicate presentation and the right pattern of a dry fly let you enjoy a great fishing day.
LAKE - Walchensee
The lake Walchensee gives you the opportunity for sight fishing for Lake Trout. Especially on the beginning of the season at early March is the chance to hook one of the shy Lake Trout really perfect. In this time normally they patrol the lakesides and later in the season they prefer the deep water. We will guide you for this special experience.
You'd like to try for other fish species with a fly?
We also offer guided fly fishing for pike and carp from the boat or belly boat on pristine Bavarian lakes. This offer is also interesting for the novice in fly fishing for pike and carp. Suiting equipment for these fish and special flies can be provided at no extra charge. Contact us, if you want to go for big fish!
Accommodations for your stay
Situated in close proximity to the towns of Bad Tölz, Wackersberg, Arzbach and Lenggries there is a variety of accommodations of all categories. We are happy to help you with the accommodation.

Our partner on site - the Fellerhof in Lenggries
The **guest house Fellerhof in Lenggries is our long-term partner on site for guest anglers who come for fly fishing on the river Isar. This quietly, within easy reach of the village center situated guest house of the family Seibold is set to fly fishing.

In the back yard of the house a large lawn and a terrace invite to relax after a fishing. Restaurants and other facilities in the village of Lenggries are within close walking distance.
