Sweden – for great angling
“North or south, in Sweden the chance of catching your dream fish is never far away!” Young or old, amateur or old hand the opportunities abound. Take Anna – she landed her first trout when she was six and was herself caught. The quote above is hers, but it could just as well be a comment from Sven, a city boy seduced by the fresh, unpolluted waters. She fetched him out to the countless waters rich in fish and now both are dedicated anglers spending holidays fishing in a clean, natural environment. For them the untouched countryside, the varied fauna and flora, the many lakes and rivers all combine to provide a satisfying life or just an especially exciting fishing holiday.

Easy to get to
Some 2,000 km or about 1,200 English miles long, Sweden presents wide variations in climate and of natural environments. “North and south aren’t the same,” says Sven. “But though it’s a large country, it’s easy to get around.” The high standard roads extend throughout the country, the trains and coaches are on time and there is a wide network of rental car companies. Airlines have cut their prices and introduced new classes of travel to meet the competition - and have made it possible to travel to Sweden much easier from all corners of the globe and for less money than ever.

Easy to enjoy
The fish you’re likely to catch also vary between different parts of the country, as do the preferred fishing methods and the length of the season. Generally the spring, summer and autumn provide the widest choice and often the most rewarding fishing. Use the map to put meat on this general description of the fishing opportunities and the incredible variety of sports fishing you can find all over the country. Still, this information can only begin to describe what you can expect in Sweden – this great angling country where, as Anna said, “the chance of catching your dream fish is never far away!”
