The Lainio river is a big river even by Scandinavian standards.
The current and the rapids are very strong, and we advise
you to use only the strongest tackle.
Concentrate your fishing to the deep necks and current edges.
After such a long voyage - more than 200 km - the salmon search
for the most convenient places to rest.
Most of the fishing is done with traditional double-handed
rods in 15-17´ ; length. The lines should be floating
or intermediate types in weight 10-12.
Suitable flies are tiny dressed ones, black is as good a
colour as any. Keep a supply in sizes from 1-6, though don't
hesitate to try a very big one - 12 cm - a longwinged tube
during the late hours or in dull weather might do the trick.
The reel must be large enough to carry a DT 11 with at least
120-150 meter of Dacron backing.
