Wide areas of water can be difficult to read

General Information on the area for the practice and competition.

Even if his region is just one of the many Scandinavian destinations for angling, it is sometimes regarded as perhaps one of the premier trout fisheries in Southern Lapland.
A large number of streams, rivers, lakes and man made water reservoirs offer the fly fisher almost every conceivable challenge associated with their sport.

There is something for everyone.

Host town for the XIX World Fly Fishing Championships

In the heart of the Swedish Lapland is its main city of Lycksele, a smallish town with a variety of shops, services and restaurants, including a zoo filled with the local wild animals you normally find: bear, wolf, lynx and others.
The town's multicultural character and activity-based lifestyle compliments the surrounding rugged scenery.
Situated just 120 kilometers west of Umeň, the huge wilderness area provide a famed playground for the outdoor enthusiast.

Renowned for skiing and fishing, the area also offer a variety of other activities including trekking, kayaking, river rafting, horse riding, not to mention picking mushrooms

Adjacent to the forest area is the semi mountainous area between the sea and the Swedish alps, an area with a wealth of streams and lakes so rich in aquatic life that sustains a wild population of brown trout, grayling, Atlantic salmon and sea trout. Also hard-fighting pike are found here, ready to take the fly.

This is also an area that proved suitable for the anglers preparing for the World Fly Fishing championships in 2001 and for the European Fly Fishing Competition in 1998

Across from there, to the other side of Lycksele, up the densely forested
roads, lie the competition waters in Malň with some of the best streams in Scandinavia for panning for gold. Here within a 120 km area of Lycksele the streams offer relief from the competition, putting recreational anglers in touch with the dream of yellow nuggets if fish are not found.
