After building up our egos catching the beautiful brown trout in Ransarån we were confident to try something different so we went after the most fearsome of the scandinavian predators: the pike. Gafsele is a place where many of Sweden’s biggest pikes are caught and 10 kg is not uncommon in these waters.
We were pleasantly surprised to find out that we were staying in a cosy cabin for the night, especially since Håvard had gotten Borat from the gas station. We tied some monstrous pike flies while watching Borat. Not very productive, or even creative, but it sure was fun. For the next days trip we had an excellent guide from France, Alban, who took us around the river with small boats. We somehow managed to hit the hottest day of the year.
Stay tuned for more…
Should have come to Replot island near Vaasa.I could have taken you out for some proper pike on the fly.
