I was astonished by the satellite pictures on the site. It gives the opportunity to have a real good look at the fishable spots.
The USA is shown in great detail, Europe though has a lot worse resolution.
Do any of you know a site that gives the same high quality pics as but then for Europe?

Not sure if you were on the Google map site or the Google Earth site. Google Earth requires a download but it is free, unless you get the pro, and has more detail in some areas than the Google map. Very good program.

Thumbs up

Google Earth is's fun to select locations and then take a tour, the map zooms in and out and pans to the different locations.

Google Maps is just about as Google earth in my opinion, and there's nothing to download. You need a high speed internet connection to really get the most out of them though.
My passion for catching fish is eclipsed only by the fish's passion not to be caught.

That's not such a bad idea at all to use when planning fishing trips. Does anyome know how recent/relevant those pictures are?
