Our link of the next year

Cxech nymphs site

Czech nymphs have been famed for a long time. The first time I really got to see their effective use was is the 1989 World Fly Fishing Competition in Kuusamo, Finland. The fantastic performance made by the short-sticking Czechs and Poles was a revelation to us conservative Swedes. If I was to choose just one link for the whole year, this would be close to it. My Sincere Thanks to the Czech team that so willingly has let me and us all to learn so much from them.

See you on the waters. Harry.

safety on waterV E N U E S
In these waters were the XXI World Fly Fishing Competition held
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.

Practice program
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.

Recommended Fly Tackle
A good trout hooked
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...
please go here for a closer look on different options
The Waters and the Crew gravel make for good spawning runs
There are numerous waters available for fly fishing in the area. Some exemples on the following site

-Thanks for visiting-

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.

on behalf of the Southern Lapland River Guides / Harry.

To the end and back!
