Video: “Dry or Die” in the Swedish Backcountry

Rolf Nylinder is back with the sixth and final installment of his series about the Vindel River Valley of Sweden. In this episode:

we follow John and Stefan on a fishing trip up to the headwaters of the Vindel river. The area has limited access in order to maintain the high quality of fishing and to minimize the pressure on the nature of the area. Johan and Stefan stop one night in Ammarnäs village before they head out to the mountains. Stefan tries his luck after the huge trout that annually migrate up from Lake Storvindeln and up in the Vindel River for spawning. The average weight is over 3.5 kg of these magnificent trout, and there’s a lot of work going on with management to preserve one of Sweden’s last strains of large migrating brown trout.
