Here are some pics from this spring march to may. We started sea trout season 11 th of march in the middle of the ice.

Week later I decided to go pike fishing with my friend Adrian. We drove 4 hours around the arghipelaco to find small area without ice. There was about 50 meters ice free area which looked like there can be some northern pikes. We caught one better and some smaller ones. Good start for this season.IMG_1742

Then was time to go Gotland again. Trip was great as usually, but weather was not so nice this time. First two days were warm and nice, we caught many sea trout, but then wind turned to north wind and it became very cold. Trouts closed they mouths and fishing was very hard.


After Gotland it was time to pike fishing again. My friend Eugen from Norway came here on Easter time. We met last autumn in Russia Expedition Taimen trip and I promised that in here Finland he can beat his Northern Pike record easily. As usual and also this time we could not choose the weather. It was really cold after warm days and pike fishing was really hard. Luckily, Eugen caught some great fish.


Weather was very difficult during the whole spring, but we still had some nice pike fishing.


At may I had my special day. I caught 5,1kg zander with chartreuse/yellow tinsel fly. I casted A bench that drops 4 from meter to something between 6-10 meter (I’m not sure, because I didn’t have fish finder) and stripped sink 4 fly line very slowly.

Then was time to fish Asp. On first day I was fishing with my friend Sami. We both caught 2 asps. Sami caught one 5kg asp and one small one and I caught 2 over 4kg fish. Couple days later I caught 3 fish more. 77cm, 79cm and one smaller.

I read from the facebook that there has been very good pike fishing around the archipelago during the weekend

But when I did go fishing the fish were eating very carefully! I saw a couple of big ones that only followed the fly. Fishing was very hard, but one big can save the day!

Day off with northern pikes 15.10.2015

Last thursday we decided to go fly fishing for northern pikes. Weather was totally wrong for that, but we didnt get depressed. Sky was clear and there was no wind. Finally in the afternoon it started to wind a little bit and then fishes activated.



Autumn’s first fly fishing trip to archipelago with Hanna.

First we were fishing in the middle of the bay, but found just little ones. First good size pike was near to the reeds. We caught some good size pike and Hanna got her bersonal best pike.

This time of year is very excellent pike fishing time becouse the fish are very powerful.
