Anybody going to Sweden in 2016?

Hello my friends!
I'm going to fishing in Byske river next year. Is here somebody familiar with this place? Any useful tips would be appreciated .

I know Swedes love to use tube flies a lot, and I subscribed to Swedish fly tying channel dedicated to such things.

Swinging in Sweden?

My wife and I are planning to visit relatives in Stockholm this summer, and I would like to swing for Atlantics in the Northern part of the country.--I met several Swedes while fishing for sea runs in Argentina, and they were the ones who recommended going north?---I was also told that June to early July seems to be "prime-time"???
Any leads, or contact information with guides, lodges, etc would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Bill

I was there a couple of years ago and fished the Morrum, DIY. Easy, beautiful, relatively inexpensive and full of big Baltic salmons and sea troutses...have fun

Please don’t low-hole me and pull my pig.

Thanks for the info on rivers you fished!---Are these rivers in the northern part of Sweden?---I'm looking for a contact person who is knowledgable about lodges, or guides for hire?---

Thanks,

Bill

The good things about Byske :
-Decent salmon catches statistics (according to previous year).
-Salmon license is quite cheap (for Northern European means :-) ), and gives a right to fish within almost 100 km part of the river from the mouth
-Many places where to buy a license (it is possible to buy in camps, small shops, gas stations)


Salmon catch statistics in 2015:
May - 945
June - 645
July - 103
August - 231
Biggest fish - 128 cm
260 fish over 100 cm
3/4 of all fish caught on fly rods, roughly 1/4 on spinning

June is the best by guides statistics. Mostly fresh fish . In May there are many kelts (fish already spawned and rolling down the sea)

some information in English is here:
Byskeälvens FVO - Information

Getting there:
few low cost airlines (notably Norwegian) serve flights from Stockholm to cities Skelleftea, Lulea and Umea, in vicinity of 30-50 km from Byske.

WOW!----Foreach, that is an amazing amount of information to digest!

Maybe we could rent a Car or Van, and drive up to the area from Stockholm?----Maybe there is Public transportation available?--I'll check!
It would be great to see the countryside driving North to the Byske.

I was hoping to find a quaint cabin to rent where my wife would feel comfortable while I Fish?---She Is a Plein Air oil painter, and would enjoy painting a few landscapes.
I do not need a guide to teach, only to help me out with flys, beats, etc.---I'll check out the Byske fly fishing guides you mentioned, as well as calling Roger & Stig, as I do not have an email address for them.---That could be a challange, as I do not speak Swedish?

Thanks a lot for taking the time to send out this information ---It's a wealth of information, and I'll try to sort through it.

Most Sincerely,

Bill Abshagen

I talked with Fallfors campground owner, Anneli. Her English is very good. She suggested that car is a must. Without car it's hard to get to fishing spots along the river
Im going to rent one in airport.

I might rent a car in Stockholm and drive up, or fly and rent at airport?---It looks to be a 10 hour drive from Stockholm, which is time, as I'm sure there is some beautiful scenery on the way up.---I'll keep plugging away on this, and see what happens.---When do you plan on fishing the area?

Thanks,

Bill
