Fishing holiday in south or central Finland

Hello,

I am planning to spend a week in the next June 2013 dedicated to fishing possibly in a river or a lake. Is anyone available to offer me some indications as :

- areas where it is possible to fish in a river (lake is an alternative)

- websites relevant to fishing regulations

- indications or websites for rent cottages

- kind of fish (is fly fishing a possibility?)

Many thanks

Ambrogio from Italy

Hello Dnapekko,

I had a look to the fishing website, unfortunately at first glance it seems quite dispersive. There is a long list of lakes and rivers but unfotunately I did not find a sort of overview with suggestions on areas of Finland where is better to go. I do not know the country in detail therefore to check all links it will take a long time.

I have time enough up to the next june, however I was looking to some sort of suggestions of local people or others european with experience for this kind of vacations.

Sorry for that, I didn't know that I was breaching the forum guidelines, it won't happen again.

Many thanks and a great forum for general interest anyway!

I'll look into getting listed formally!

I'm not a keen fisher but as these were more general questions...

"areas where it is possible to fish in a river (lake is an alternative)"

- Everywhere unless it's restricted.

"websites relevant to fishing regulations"

- For starters:

mmm.fi/en/…Recreational_fishing.html

metsa.fi/sivustot/…HuntingandFishing.aspx

- And for fishing licence system:

http://www.ahven.net/english

"indications or websites for rent cottages"

- Lomarengas is the largest service for privately owned cottages: http://www.lomarengas.fi/cottages

"kind of fish (is fly fishing a possibility?)"

- If you could manage this forum, even though it's interface is in Finnish:

http://www.perhokalastajat.net/keskustelu/

- Or these two:

http://kalastus.com/forum

http://www.kalamies.com/kalastus-keskustelut

- Fishing is hugely popular and those fishermen seem quite active on the forums

Oh, and one very useful bit of information, when traveling in nature in Finland, is to know about our so called Everyman's rights. Check this page and link "Everyman's right in Finland":

Guys, do you understand that the original question is ancient and that the OP has not posted since last September?
