There are still requests for guided fishing but now the business is closed. I will soon go out and thank all the customers over the years with a photo parade of some happy people over the years!
The McLay boat is for sale and I may have a buyer but it is not completely clear yet.
Best Regards / Tommy
I have told this before but it needs to be clarified. I do not accept any more bookings now for salmon fishing on Lake Vänern or in the lakes. The website will be redesigned in terms of content or to end it completely. The decision has not yet been made 100%.
Spring fishing has never before been as varied in terms of catch as this spring. One day you get several large salmon and trout and the next day you may get one or none at all! Despite the same place and the same weather !? I will post some more pictures next week and also more information about the end.
wish you all a nice weekend! / Tommy
A little windier boat trip than the day before but luckily the winds calmed down after lunch…! Then it started chopping a little denser too!
This day we got the first trout before we had rigged out all the rods…! A rocket launch! Then followed a few hours with windy and gusty winds but no worse than it was possible to fish. After lunch the wind went down to 2-3 m / sec and then the sun started to gass a little goare! As the weather improved, fishing also improved.
We had SEX good pacifiers and landed a total of 4 fish during the day. Two fish released. Two fine trout that were allowed to come home and larger wild salmon that in both cases came loose in the net and could be released easily! Fredrik became today's wild salmon expert "and Hampus became responsible for the" food fish "!
The surface rod fished best both today and yesterday! New roof on Monday again!
Over & out! / Tommy
Claes and Erik from Vänersborg are with us for the last time. Erik teased a nice salmon and inaugurated the spring!
The weather is a bit better at the moment and I hope to be able to drive a few trips now. Sunny and calm spring winds! Claes also got to drill a trout that we had to return back to the lake.
We drive tomorrow too!
The spring of 2021 will be the last season on Lake Vänern after 23 years of "the world's most fun job"
The autumn seasonfishing days were very few - only 3 days we came out on Lake Vänern ... The fishing on these three days was very good! All fishing guests received approved salmon or trout!All other canceled days will be moved to the spring season, which will be the last season that I run guided tours on Lake Vänern.
It is a big challenge to conduct salmon trolling on Lake Vänern with all the usual obstacles such as windy weather, slippery road conditions, difficult fishing and now Corona came as "cream of the crop" which makes it impossible to conduct the guide in a business way and have it as income. For me, the closed border with Norway is a big problem.
For me, Corona became what helped me make the decision to quit after over 23 years of career as a salmon trolling guide on Lake Vänern. So now I will try to make a nice rounding for the spring. Some regulars have heard from me and booked one last fishing experience with me this spring. Feels warm in the heart. Will miss you all and all wonderful experiences we had in the boat together!
Hold out - Keep your distance - Keep in touch with each other!
Best Fish Greetings / Tommy
We have only come two days so far due to the windy conditions associated with mild weather.
With these pictures we just want to show that it is possible to get both salmon and trout!
We get some cancellations given the new restrictions and we then move the fishing forward to the spring and hope that the situation is better then!
Take care of you all and keep your distance, I hope we are seen and heard going forward!
During the autumn from the end of October to the second week in December, it is currently fully booked. I run the guide half time with two or a maximum of three days per week.
We will also be extremely careful with the Corona rules that apply. All guests and myself MUST BE COMPLETELY HEALTHY AND WITHOUT COLD SYMPTOMS on the day of fishing.
I have also set the maximum number of participants to FOUR people in the boat. Otherwise, we hope that the autumn offers some great fishing days on Lake Vänern and the lakes in northern Dalsland / Värmland! The ports of departure that apply are just like before Sunnanå Harbor in Mellerud or Tössebäcken Harbor which is south of Åmål. (See the contact page!) When we choose the lakes, there are other starting points according to ö.k.

Two large rainbow trout of 3.7 kg and 3.3 kg respectively and a pike on the first five casts…!
Then there was a cross stop in the fishing… but it was enough for Peter to be happy!
Bookings for November are almost full now! In December, however, there are free days left for Salmon Trolling on Lake Vänern!

Hotel package at First Hotell and Flytringsfiske with us. 3-course dinners, breakfast, packed lunches, access to gym, sauna, etc.
Relax for a weekend in northern Dalsland. Pack the essentials and pamper yourself with family or friends! Four hours of fishing in private lake with the assistance of a guide. The package is bookable during September and October.
Some of the spring's canceled bookings on Lake Vänern were postponed to the autumn season instead, which we hope to be able to carry out according to plan!
There are free days left from mid-November onwards. If you are eager to try the trolling fishing for salmon and trout, it's time to book now!
At the beginning of November, two of our regular customers will come from Switzerland! Herrman and Alfred Beyeler. Then we usually alternate fishing for rainbow trout and some day with salmon trolling on Lake Vänern or on Västra Silen. All depending on the weather and wind!
These gentlemen "feel at home" in Bengtsfors after being here many times now! This is important when we work with our guests. -They should feel at home here in Bengtsfors and Dalsland!
Now we are keeping our fingers crossed that the Corona situation will not get worse and that people will respect the rules we have to abide by!
Over & Out! / Tommy
