Set in the semi-mountinous area between the swedish
alps and the coast most waters are quite different from each other.
Rivers vary from fairly slow flowing streams characterized by
riffly runs and pools to anything with rock and gravel bottoms
where mixtures of weedy and quieter areas and faster rocky broken
waters support both grayling, brown trout and Atlantic salmon.
Welcome to visit also still waters here with char,trout and pike.

The Västerbotten region is perhaps one of Swedish
Southern Lapland's premier trout fisheries. A large number of streams,
rivers, lakes and man made water reservoirs offer the fly fisher
almost every conceivable challenge associated with their sport.
Apart from trout, grayling, char and
pike, the Atlantic salmon thrive here too. To read more click here!

Host town for the XIX
World Fly Fishing Championships
The competition was based in Lycksele which is
1,5 hours drive from Umeå and about 1-1,5 hours drive from the
competition rivers. Some of the practice rivers were closer though
and especially the teams in Bjurholm with the Southern Lapland
River Guides had no longer than one half hour to any practice
water. The Southern Lapland River Guides' practice
For most of the trout fishing in the area an 8.5-9 foot rod, for
a 4/5/6 weight, floating and intermediate line will do just fine.
But for the frequent catches of Atlantic salmon and sea trout
in most of the rivers in the area, we would suggest a two handed
rod as an option. Pike fishing is again another story, but...

Dear Fly Fisher,
as the well known symbol of Catch and Release
helps us to focus on our aim to care for the fish and nature
in not only releasing our catch, but also to handle and play
it properly so it survives the release and can spawn once again,
the symbol here also marks the start of something new. To check
out the end, please click the C&R mark above
See you on the waters.
