Friends of the Forstingers

We may not be the most exclusive club in the world…

…but we are the warmest, friendliest and quite possibly the most fun! In contrast to a traditional fishing club or association, we are a jolly crowd that has already been together for 35 years. The ‘Friends of the Forstingers’ are a close circle of fly-fishers who meet annually at Hotel Forstinger for a week of fun and fishing. Of course, angling is at the centre of this community, which is really quite special and particularly friendly – but not at all elitist.

It was founded in 1982 by Willi Forstinger, Willi Pick and a few close friends. Over the years this circle of friends has grown steadily; not just regarding its membership – also in geographical terms. The friends who gather at the hotel every April come from many different parts of the globe: Germany, Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Singapore, Brazil, Canada and the US.

Willi Forstinger and Willi Pick, lovingly nicknamed the ‘President’, have remained the driving forces behind the club to this day. Of course, a special mention goes to their ‘first ladies’, Margarethe Forstinger and Martha Pick, who actively support the group. Today, as enthusiastic fly-fishers, the new boss, Margret Forstinger, and her husband, Frank Eder, have continued this tradition and are deeply committed to the sport.

The Forstinger family is very proud of its circle of friends, it includes many well-known fly-fishers!
