Fly fishing for salmon in Sweden. The rivers connecting to the Baltic Sea have some of the world's largest salmon. In this video, we are fishing at Fish Your Dream destination Camp Onka in Lainio river upstream of Kangos. With me, I have Guides Grim and Luke and we are out pre-fishing two days before the first guests come for the season.
Fishing can be extremely challenging during this period due to that there is only a few fish that has yet entered the river but the average size is very good.

The Salmon in this video measured 114 cm and is estimated to weigh about 15 kilos.
