lOve at First Cast
Sweden has some 40 000
square kilometres of water,
roughly equal in surface to
the Netherlands.
We also have 11 590 km of
mainland coastline. This is
roughly equal to one quarter
of the Earth’s perimeter.

These are figures that make all true fishing afi-
cionados dig out their fly-fishing rods, check
the box of spoons and speculate whether
the waders have dried since the most recent
fishing trip.
   There is thus plenty of fishing waters in our
country. The question is whether the best of
them might be found in Jämtland.

   personally I discovered Jämtland when, as
a ten year old, I was at the library in örebro.
   Ten years later I had the opportunity to go
fishing in the county in the company of my
idol fisherman rolf smedman. This was love
from the first cast. but no fish.

    abOut angling in the seasOns

    The great thing about sport fishing is that it is an outdoor inte-
    rest you can pursue throughout the year - and yet enjoy variety
    and new experiences. To the highest extent, Jämtland/Härjeda-
    len can offer angling in all seasons.

    angling tiPs
    to most angling aficionados in this part of
    the world, the name Peter sjödin is well
    known. Peter is a frequent guest in the
    popular swedish tv show ’Jakt & Fiske’
    (hunting & Fishing). For more than 40
    years Peter has been an active angler, and
    here follow a few generous tips from this
    Jämtland angling profile.

    stake out the fishing water
    It is essential that you familiarize yourself with
    the fishing ground before getting started. a
    rise would reveal good casting points. edges of
    streams, deep ridges, rocks and nick-points are
    some examples of interesting fishing grounds.
    The current hatching of insects can help you
    choose flies. With the use of binoculars you can

The River Dammån meanders down the 40 km from Höglekarda-
len to Lake Storsjön; at times gushing, at times flowing slowly.
Here is a wonderful blend of mountain landscape and deep val-
leys. The river is well-known as the habitat of the large brown

spawning ground for the migratory brown trout
of lake storsjön. fishing for dammå brown trout
is very similar to fishing for salmon so the fly-
fishermen are recommended to use streamers
and tube flies.
   downstream is the village Ågårdarna inviting
varied fishing and with rich deep pools. during
the summer it is possible to watch the catch and
control of the magnificent brown trout in the
fish ladder. ever since the 1950s, each brown
trout passing the ladder has been counted,
measured, weighed, and sex determined every
morning and evening. during the light summer
months it is possible to fish around the clock,           photo: Ingrid hedlund
