The Maximum Code – Vol. 4 – Mountain Char

For his latest movie-project Swift Fly Fishing Ambassador Peter Corzilius hiked out into the wilderness of Swedish Lappland searching for arctic char, a special species that lives in big and clear mountain lakes. Peter was planning the trip for quite some time. His good friend Nico, another flyfishing-addict, accompanied him. They carried everything they needed with them for 8 days of hiking, fishing and filming ( a 29 kilo backpack each!)

The so-called fjäll in northern Sweden is famous for its many fishing possibilities. Out in the wild you can find waters that are under ice for half of the year. The rest of the year not so many anglers come to fish, because often it is a long way to go and there are no roads or even trails.

Whole Sweden is shaped by water. Almost everywhere you can find rivers, lakes and streams that want to be fished. Especially in the north of the country you will find wild waters that are little fished and that offer good, natural populations. From crystal-clear mountain lakes, steeply sloping, cold rivers to deep and unbelievably large lakes, there is water as far as the eye can see. Almost everywhere these waters are so clean and untouched that their water has drinking water quality. The fish you can catch are of incredible beauty and absolutely wild.

Peter and Nico found an incomparable fishery and beautiful fish, most of them taking dry flies. The movie is not only about fishing, but about being out, hiking, and camping in the wild.

- Enjoy!

Winter Fly Fishing With Brian O'Keefe

February 25, 2022

I was recently chatting to my buddy Brian O'Keefe about what he was up to over the winter months, and after having returned home from a balmy trip to Patagonia he was straight back into it - in the snow.
In New Zealand, all but the most hardened anglers hang up their gear come winter, so I had a few questions.
