Gear and features

For fishing on Volonga #8-9 double-handed rods would be optimal, in the middle of the season on lower water #6-7 double-handed or #7-8 single-handed rods could be recommended. These recommendations are fairly versatile and this will be sufficient for fishing on salmon, trout, char and humpback.

For fishing on grayling and resident trout #5-7 single-handed rods equipped with floating lines will suit well.

Any reliable reels with good balance will suit.

In most cases aggressive floating line and a set of sinking leaders will be enough. The versatile option is Scandi head with replaceable tips of different sinking speed.

Tippet material, monofilament and fluorocarbon 0,3-0,4 mm.

Popular flies tied on tubes and hooks of a middle size for fishing on Atlantic salmon. We can prepare a minimal set of flies for you.
