A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelaelven - part 3

The third part (3 of 6) of A Fishing Year Along The River Vindelälven Valley.

In this episode we first see the incredible power of the spring run off in the Vindelälven river when Petra Sjöberg stops at Vormforsen rapids to study the tribute song "Änglamark" written by Evert Taube to preserve the river from hydro power development.

Later, we follow the ardent fly fisherman and fisheries manager Daniel Holmqvist to two of the river's tributaries, Manjaurån and Gargån. Both of these waters are restored after the timber floating era and the fish stocks has exploded after the efforts. Daniel tells us more about this while he's pulling fish after fish.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
