Fishing trips in Sweden: known for unmatched and unequalled salmon fishing and heavy elk hunts.
A sheet of seamless fog hangs low over the rivers, seeping into the fields and lastly into the towering forest. With wood and willow grouse, black grouse cock and duck, it's hard to pick just one of the variety Sweden offers in bird game, not to mention its broader big game. A trained pointing dog will spear through the bush to find you the elk, Sweden has the world's highest density of elk with ¼ of a million. To target a wild boar trotting in the moonlight or a red deer standing strong on the lip of an open field is equally exhilarating and common in the Swedish countryside. Such Nordic forests and valleys classically hold beaver and European bison for a variation of choice. But let’s address the elephant in the room, Sweden is iconic for its magnificent quality of salmon. Whether it is salmon together with trout and pike in Sweden’s largest Lake Vanern, or lowland lakes for zander and perch, the spectrum for anglers is far from limited. Trolling for salmon on the steel waters outside Simrishamn can bag a 25 or more kilogram specimen. Again, choice here is abundant and key to Sweden as a fantastic angling destination with other opportunities like its Western coast which is ideal for deep sea fishing of cod and sea trout among others.
