The early bird catches ..the fish.
By this point there are 16 professional fisheries on Lake Chiemsee, Fishery Lex is one of them. The family business is being run since 1857 in the sixth generation, making them one of the oldest fisher families on the lake.
Their speciality is Chiemsee-Renke, a fish whose skin turns golden when gently cured over beech wood.
I accompanied them for a morning and followed the journey of the golden fish.
