Only caught 3 Baltic herring on the dryfly & 1 Roach from a nymph under the dryfly, missed 1 fish, not sure what & only seen 1 desent fish take something from the surface in the whole day! License is expensive for this river cos' Salmon use it, 25euros for 24hrs! Heading east on sunday, hope to catch trout & grayling on a differen't river!?!:)

    River Pig! If he has a bit of age about him? You can trust him to build & engineer anything! In my whole work life in Australia i seen Finnish formworkers with a better engineering knolage then people with papers straight out of University, sad but true! The world is what it is & some new boss will always try to use a guy with 40+ years experience as a ginipig to try something to make a name for himself & when it goes wrong it's the fault of the guy with 40+ years of experiance that didn't even want to know about it's fault! Sorry to get a bit off track! Just a touchy subject at the moment!:)

    That was just a stupid joke, he's not actually from Finland. A finish carpenter is what we call the guy who does trim and doors and cabinets and the like, finishing up what the framers started.
    You are the only real Finn I know, and I enjoy your reports. Keep them coming.

    My brother-in-law was in Kokkola last week visiting. What a beautiful country. I can only imagine how great the fishing is. Long days. You get your money's worth for a 24 hour license.
