Offer description

I do like sustainable approach, so in  lakes under 400 ha I do use a rowing boat. It helps me to be in a good physical and mental strength. But I have a possibility to pack a motorboat too. For finding fish and mapping I use Humminbird Helix 10 SI. I do like active fishing. Varying between disciplines. Spinning, fly fishing, trout fishing are main subjects of my interest. And I try to put it together with local history, tales and reciepes. Preferably from local products.
