Ice Fishing on Lake Sils

Two completely different hunters feel perfectly at home in Plaun da Lej. Both love fish, and both love Lake Sils. But only one of them turns from the hunter into the hunted – in winter, when ice fishermen lay claim to the lake. A scraping sound like that of a carrot grater reverberates on the mountain flanks rising from the lakeshore. Antonio Walther is busy drilling a small hole in the 60-centimetre-thick ice. One last turn and the drill is through. Water spills out onto the frozen lake. Antonio is a fisherman. Not just any fisherman, but one who is well known in this valley – be it because he's the chairman of the local fishing association, serves Alaskan king crab in his restaurant or likes to rebel a bit from time to time.
