After a long wait, it was time for the fishing premiere in the Arjeplog stream on 6th June at 18:00. New equipment and crankbait creations done past winter would be tested around the streams with great anticipation.
We had hardly been able to start fishing before the first graylings hit the lures.
It was double joy that the winter's production of own crankbaits gave better than expected results. A combination of UL equipment and 0.12 mm line usually suffices in the smaller of the Arjeplogs currents and makes the grayling a true fighter.
The first 2 days of fishing gave 2 graylings over 50cm.
Sun shines and happy faces.
Fun when you catch fish on your own lures .
Amazing sunrise at Arjeplogs streams.
Not a trout above 15cm but plenty of smaller ones. Handle gently the smaller trouts that's put back.
Beautiful night at Skiltjaströmmen.
It is not always the actual fishing that comes first and foremost but to get out into nature, is there anything more calming than sitting at the campfire and feeling the coffee scent to the sound of the rapids?
Big dorsal fins even on smaller grayling.
The grayling is undervalued as a sport fish, with light equipment it is a real fighter with strenght.
Grayling ca. 40cm
Once in a while you can catch perch Arjeplogsströmmarna.
