Lapland is in the north of Sweden (and Finland). The fishing isn't very much different to parts of the UK, the species are similar but some of the rivers have arctic charr which makes things interesting.Thank you Sewnbasher, I am new to using forums! Its the north I am travelling to. I fish similar patterns here in Ireland but I will make sure I tie some of your suggestions.
Not just so far north. You will find big graylings are quite common in all Lapland (Norwegian/Swedish/Finnish/Russian) and 4lbs grayling are not uncommon :thumbs:If you go to the North of Sweden (around and above Kiruna), then you can use large flies for the very big grayling.
I have used gurglers in 2011, which was a good lemming year. You could call it a dry fly because it floats Lemmings swim across rivers and are on the menu of trout and grayling.
Another good way to catch large grayling are streamers that imitate young fish. Like this stickleback imitation >> https://finestblog.wordpress.com/2012/02/10/fliegenbinden-horny-stickleback/. In fact, it can imitate a wide range of small fish.
