I got talking with Elias after he messaged me saying that he'd enjoyed listening to the podcast while shovelling snow at his home in Lapland some 200km north of the Arctic Circle. I invited him along to learn about the fishing in the area and what it means to him. I discovered someone who cares passionately about their waterways, some clean enough to drink from, and the huge variety of different fishing options that are on his doorstep but also deeper into the wilderness. We talk about fishing, flies and whether he is able to keep a tidy fly box. This is a fascinating look into a place I k ..read more
