Winter fishing – Fly fishing trips


It’s April. First fishing trip of the season. I’m with my brother. There. The serious driver. And look still plenty of snow outside. So the agenda of today is to get all the fishing gear out of the garage and stuff like that and actually make it to the river and see how it goes. This time of year in Finland around April. april-ish we have the february-red hatching. Gear is out of garage and we are on our way to Kuhmo. The weather forecast looks cloudy but outside. Beautiful blue sky. Alrighty. We are here. River. Let’s get license from there. Mobile license. And then we go. Excellent place for parking right no problem The place looks nice and let’s see if there’s any fish here. The first good thing is the weather. Lovely. So never trust the weather forecast. It’s always a good day to go fishing. You never know, it might change or then it’s a crappy weather and still you are out. One surface ring spotted there. My focus is to eat some snacks now. One year and three days ago I posted my first ever vlog episode and it was filmed right about here in Kuhmo. Not this exact River but close by. So this is kind of like a anniversary today. I went for a swim. Right. The first place was nice sunshine pretty place it was quiet We saw few rings on the surface, didn’t catch anything with some other fishermen and they had caught some fish. Little bit upstream from where we were so that’s nice to hear and lovely day continues and this is the second place that we’re going to check out that’s a good sign There’s quite a lot of snow. I’m stuck. sumari perho I think we’ll try another place I think we can’t drive there. interesting weather sun is shining and it’s snowing a little bit looks really magical I don’t know if the snow is visible on the camera it looks pretty awesome. No fish yet though. The conclusion, zero. But excellent day. All good, now we head back home And now, you, get out there!

  1. been out once this year and not one single take in 6 hrs, perhaps a fishing invite to Finland late summer could change my luck 👍

  2. I'm a whitewater kayaker, so I spend a lot of time in the same places. I have a drysuit and have gone in the winter months, although not as nearly as cold as it is there! Beautiful scenery and I enjoyed the video!

  3. I was laughing so hard when you got stuck in the snow…oh my goodness! I love watching your fly fishing videos, I haven't been fishing for a few years, in fact, I've never fly fished before, but you make it look so tempting to learn how to try!

  4. Awesome Stuff man 😀 Left a sub! Could you give some feedback on my channel aswell and leave a sub if u like my content? Keep going with this content my man, its awesome!
