Morrum Sweden advice please

Hi. I have a friend who has recently moved to Sweden and is keen we go over for a fishing trip on the Morrum. So could anyone give any advice on how you book licenses, is it a lottery system, or first come first served.
What would reccomendations be for targeting large salmon, ie. time of year etc.
Viewing the website, the Kronofiske fishery is split into three zones. Are the beats to be fished strictly for one for each part of the season. Otherwise what would be the best zone allocation to choose or do we not get the choice, they choose for you?

Also tackle advice. I understand there is a unique way of casting on this river due to it's environment, What size rod would be best, if we are only able to take one, and what length shooting head would best suit?

Many thanks

3 seasons

Morrum nows 3 seasons with their own character:

1) Fishing for kelt seatrout (fish that was in the river during the winter after spawning in the fall). This is an early eason fisherey. The river opens on the last weekend of March and the fishing remains good until the end of the first week of april. So we are talking here about 1 or (maximum) 2 weeks time frame. Then most of the fish are gone to sea or are killed and taken home. This spring time fishing is popular in Sweden and it is a fishing with fast sinking lines ( offcause depending on river flow) and 13-14 feet # 9 rods.

2) fishing for fresh run salmon in May. This is a fishing for very big salmon ( up to the odd 40 lbs fish) but it is also a fishing for very few fish running the river. There will be many people fishing 80 - 120 and on a good day in may 5 people will hook a fish..... Most locals who fish every day in May are happy with 1 or 2 fish for the month. For a newcomer this is a very hard fishery.. rods: 15' #10, intermediate lines.

3) Fishing for seatrout in the fall (september). Good fishery in Morrum. The last couple off years some nice fish have been caught. Mostly an evening fishery using black flies in the dark. rods: 12-14' #8/9 floating lines.

Google Morrum and you will find a ton off information about this difficult butt very rewarding river.
