This trip includes special arrangements and shall be booked well in advance.
This trip focuses on taking you to places where you can find record-size grayiling (up to 60 cm). You can fish both in flowing and still waters for these giants. The environment where you will be moving around is challenging, so please prepare for that.
The rivers and lakes in the area consist of clear, drinkable water. Depending on the local conditions such as water height and temperature the guide will take you to places where you have the possibility to catch arctic fish of a lifetime.
FISHING AND EQUIPMENT
The trip is only suitable for fly fishing, with light 8-10’ rods in classes #4-6. Prepare for a versatile style of fishing during the trip.
The fly fishing differs a lot depending on what kind of water we will be fishing – you will get to experience everything from fishing with streamers and nymphs in rapids to enjoying the excitement of dry fly fishing in still waters.
Imitations of artic nature in the form of brown, grey and dark colours are most commonly used. Usually small flies in sizes 10-16 are preferred. Dry flies, nymphs, streamers and wet flies are used – so prepare for a broad variety of flies. Flies can be discussed with the guide prior to the trip.
ACCOMMODATION, MEALS AND CLOTHING
The travel arrangement includes accommodation in tents or Tentipi. Guests should bring their own sleeping bag, toiletries, warm and weatherproof clothing and fishing gear. Prepare for harsh conditions on the tundra, with rain and challenging temperatures. You will be outside all the time, where clothing and equipment can easily get wet.
The daytime temperature varies between 10 to 20 C in the air and 5 to 10 C in the water and at night time it can reach below 0 C. The weather can shift quickly so be prepared with warm clothing. Layer clothing is highly recommended and wading gear is a must. Pack accordingly and try to avoid bringing electronics, or pack them in dry packs.
All meals (Breakfast, lunch and dinner) every day are included and served outside by the guide.
During the summer there are usually a lot of flies and mosquitoes so repellent is a must.
Day 1. The guests are picked up either from Kiruna airport at arrival or city centre in the morning. From there we will drive to the helicopter base for walk-through of the trip and security arrangements. When ready, we are flown to the fishing grounds up in the tundra. We set up camp and start fishing.
Next days – The day starts with an early breakfast and the group head afterwards out to fish different areas.
Last day – Same as day previous day, then the helicopter pick us up in the afternoon and take us back to base, where the guests can enjoy a refreshing sauna and shower. Afterwards, guests are afterwards taken back to Kiruna airport or to the city centre.
