Fly fishing, spey casting and salmon fishing
High up in Swedish Lapland lies one of the last wild and
untouched salmon waters in the world. Winding through the
wilderness, approx. 186 miles (300 km) north of the Arctic
Circle, where silence and beauty abounds you will find it
-- The wild salmon's Eldorado!
The beautiful Lainio River is widely known and described
by many as a river of great diversity with a large
variety of both natural environments and fish species. Many
fly-fishermen from throughout the world have come to the Lainio
River to capture the elusive wild salmon - such as Mr. Peter
Anderson, world champion in fly-casting with a two-hand rod.
The midnight sun and light evenings give you a magical feeling
when casting for salmon. You may even be observed by Sweden's
elusive brown bear, lynx (lokatt) or wolverine (järv).
During your Spey casting training, you will have plenty of
opportunities to discuss your newly learned skills and reflections.
If the salmon are not biting, there is still a good chance
for you to catch grayling (harr) and trout (öring).
This course offers you the unique opportunity to learn something
that many sport-fishermen dream of -- to tie the elegant salmon
fly and break the code for catching wild salmon in
the Lainio River. Learning the steps for this artistic casting
technique where rhythm, harmony, balance, calm and quickness
are vital ingredients (a little like Zen Buddhism)
can never be wrong!
Spey-Casting is a casting technique, which was developed
on the Spey River in Scotland. The banks of the Spey River
are covered with bushes and it is extremely difficult to reach
the water. Here, it is nearly impossible to fly-fish in the
traditional sense, casting the line in circles overhead.
The Spey-casting technique that you will learn will not only
offer you a good method for fishing in places that are hard
to reach but also teach you the art of relaxation and rhythm.
