2010 Andreas Steidl alias “Andi” founded the guiding and outdoor company
Andi is a passionated fisherman and his engagement started already when he was a child.
In his early years he was fishing in various waters of Croatia, Italy and of course in his homecounty Austria for predatory and non-predatory fish.
Time showed up a preference for predatory fish which led to his professional attitude in supporting customers especially in this field.
After the fall of the “Iron Curtain” it became easier to cross the border to the Czech Republic and therefore Andi started to enlarge his activities to the Lipno Moldaustausee, river Vltava, the Otava river and Volinka on Czech territory.
When he uses his handmade boat “shallop” for fishing on predatory fish he knows the perfect spots with good texture and structure to be targeted.
His knowledge of the waters is endless. He knows all about hidden sunken villages and forestareas and relies on numerous years of experience.
In addition to spinning, Vertical, Fin-S rig, he also offers his clients fly fishing for pike, zander, asp using his boat.
A special adventure are various provided packages that include several days with camping and catering on and around the lake.
To highlight are Andi`s belly boat tours on the Vltava river, where you can experience the wilderness and the Meandering Moldova in all details.
It is not only about fishing it’s also relaxing and balm for your soul ”
The 35-km-long Vltava River is navigable for several days with the belly boat using fly or spinning rod for grayling, pike and asp.
Through his experience in the outdoor activities he creates special moments to perfection for his guests including good food, sleeping and campfire.
He spent a lot of time at the “Great Muehl” in the bohemian forest, which is a socalled homebase for him and a top water for Broun Trout and grayling. Andi promotes fly fishing at that location an offers guidings and courses.
Since he is constantly looking for something new he takes his time to go to India where he is used to fish marine predators with spinning and fly rod.
Through the experience of recent years he organized today fishing trips to India (Andaman Island) with all-inclusive packages (guiding, boat, accommodation, flight, ferries, etc.).
On request he organises the whole trip for you and becomes your cultural “translater”.
