Stockholm is only a 3 hour flight from the UK and a short transfer later you can be in the midst of some of the most breathtaking scenery and fishing on the planet.

Many angling holidays, especially fly-fishing, start at prices which put them out of reach of many people. With this very special offer we can offer you exceptional quality sport at an incredible price which won’t break the bank.

Expertly guided throughout your trip by our resident professional angler, Steve Crowther, whatever you fancy whether it be big Pike, Perch, Zander or even Sea Trout and Salmon - we can make it happen.

Steve Crowther, GB lure angler, Shimano Advisor and internationally respected journalist, is your host on this amazing trip. From your departure at London Stansted Airport on the 8th June, you fly with Ryanair to Stockholm, Sweden. (Flights are not included in the price of the package, however Ultimate Angling can help you book the required flights should you request. At the moment they have availability on flights for only approximately £40 return!)

At the airport you collect your hire car for the week (included in the price of the package) and transfer to your first location of the week – Vastervik.

Vastervik is located in the heart of Swedens most beautiful archipeligo with over 4,500 islands. This is one of Europes prime destinations for catching large Pike, Perch, Salmon and Sea Trout. Pike can be found everywhere in this area with weights of 20lb by no means unusual. Gentle spinning along with Jerk Baits and Floating Wobblers are a very successful tactic. Perch are abundant with specimens of 1 – 3lb caught with the right tactics. If you fancy Sea Trout then a trip around the shallow South facing bays can be organised. For Salmon, trolling in the open sea in the early summer is the best tactic.

Accommodation is in a 4 berth self catering chalet at the Vastervik Fishing Camp. No meals are provided but eating out in this area is not all that expensive with a typical evening meal costing £10. Each chalet has a Kitchen with Stove, Sink and Refrigerator. There is also a shower, WC and TV.

Boat hire is also included in the price, as is expert guided fishing for one of the days here from reknowned angler Anders Forsberg. Most anglers prefer to bring their own tackle to Sweden with them and a UK standart outfit is more than suitable. Should you require we can hire you tackle upon your arrival for approximately £30 per week.

You will stay and fish at Vastervik for 4 days (8th – 11th) before moving onto your second destination the amazing Getno Gard.

Getno Gard is a private nature reserve on a series of peninsulas and has it’s own archipeligo of islands in the middle of the Asnen Lake. It has a distinctive landscape with delightful beaches, woodlands, bays and channels to fish, along with an abundance of animals and birds.

It is a paradise for predator anglers. It’s waters are rich in plankton life which means that the fish grow rapidly and to great weights. The average depth is 3 – 4 metres but at it’s most northerly point it is 14 metres deep which is where the very big fish congregate in the spring and autumn.

Getno Gard is THE place for large pike. The best fishing is by boat (hire included in the package price) with spinning or trolling both successful. Specimens of 20lb are common in this area and the venue record stands at a phenomenal 52 _lb (23.9kg). Getno Gard is also famous for it’s Zander fishing. This abundant, incredibly hard fighting and aggressive species grow to weights in excess of 30lb with last years record standing at 31 _lb. If Perch take your fancy this is the place to be. Last year the record fish weighed 6 _lb!

Accommodation at Getno Gard is in a large chalet with kitchen, sauna, shower/WC, satellite TV and has been newly renovated. Meals are included in the price at Getno Gard.

You will spend 3 days fishing in this amazing setting (12th – 14th) before leaving for your return flight from Stockholm in the morning of the 15th.

Normally a trip like this to Sweden would set you back about £800 but for this very special promotional trip we are offering the one remaining space at an incredible £400!
