Against all odds

Don’t know if this video has been shared here before, but this is a ”modern classic” for me.
It’s filmed in river Byske, here in the north of Sweden, and yes it is very risky and stupid but just enjoy the madness of salmonfishing.

Ps. For you that doesn’t understand swedish, there are english subtitles/comments as an option! Ds.

Video is unable. Still unavailable after VPN tunnelling to various corners. EDIT: PROBLEM SOLVED

Science is not common sense. Much of it is devoted to a systematic documentation of what we do not know and understand.

Switched browsers, dropped the VPN and now I can easily see it. Ironically, web browser Opera would not allow me to see it. Tuck.

Head-sized rocks, Class III white water, high water into the bank and sweepers. Wading to shoulder depth? Yup. Stupid fits.

Most of us got crazy stuff like this out of our systems when we were in our teens and twenties.

I was on this river, and know this place. One of tough rivers to fish, due to heavy flow, and limited bank access

Lovely vid. Gotta hand it to the Swedes - they drive the safest cars in the world - then take crazy risks out fishing. They've got their priorities straight.

Iíve noticed that Atlantic salmon fisherman on the other side of the Atlantic keep their rods straight up in the air. I was under the impression that a low and to the side puts way more pressure on a fish? Am I missing something?

Bigger fish on that side in comparison

Need the cushion of the rod to keep them pinned I am guessing

I think I fish, in part, because itís an anti-social, bohemian business that, when gone about properly, puts you forever outside the mainstream culture without actually landing you in an institution. ĖJohn Gierach

Did not watch this until now and had to watch it again wish I did not

The ending is pathetic and I hope others in that area of the world show a beautiful creature more respect than that guy did, to bad some of those slips during the fight did not cause a lost fish

Unbelievable

Side pressure keeps them pinned. Holding rod up, especially a 2 handed, lets them rest as long as they want and keep on running. I didnít know if it was to keep them off of rocks maybe? Everybody who fishes Chinooks in PNW which are more powerful than Atlanticís, puts their rod low and to the side.......sometimes even rod in water.

Iím curious if it has to do with different river layout....i.e. not as deep?

Be interesting to see that study

Have you hook an Atlantic in the pound class of a Chinook

I think he is just a douche-bag the way he carried on, were numerous places along the way to bring to bank and the way he handled that majestic beast. They must have a hell more of them over there than we do

No I havenít hooked an Atlantic in the pound class of Chinook! So I should be careful on what I say!

I do remember reading an article by ĎSalmon Junkiesí who seem to be pretty knowledgeable in the area. They were explaining gear for Chinook fishing and said: ďChinook are about 25% strongerĒ

But ultimately I donít have first hand experience
