Some Tube flies for River Lainio
The 17/6 eight fishermans landed with the Helicopter on the banks of River Lainio in Lapland over 500km from the sea to fish for salmon. After setting up the rods and change to vaders we started to fish the beat. The first evening we just got some brown trouts and graylings and when sitting buy the river drinking some beer and a wee dram or two the first salmon showed it self. Day number two started with some fish contact and later in the afternoon Putte hooked and landed his first Salmon, a great fish! Later Pelle landed his first ever salmon to and Mattias Drugge lost a big fish just before it was ready for landing. The third fish landed was buy Kalle that never had a salmon before either and that fish weighted 10,5kg and was a real cracker. The next day started with The Lainio legend Per landed his first fish over 20lBs of three. Mr Drugge got up early the next morning and soon hooked in to a big fish. After a long fight he could land a the biggest fish for the trip and it weighted 13,3kg. Later Per got another round the 20Ibs mark and David lost a nice fish when he tryed to tail the fish. Later i Got into a big fish and it gave me a hell of a fight before i got it safley on the bank and it was a 11kg hen fish, a real beauthy. After 2,5 days fishing we break up the camp and went rafting down stream and stayed and fished some lovely pools on the way to the pick up point. Top rod on the trip was Lainio legend Per with three salmons over 20lbs.
Mattias Drugges 29lbs fish
Kalles 23Ibs salmon
Puttes first ever salmon on the bank
