About Lapland Pike

Is it a competition? Well, yes, but we like it more as a reason for lectures, fishing workshops, social gatherings, traditional cuisine and entertainment. Mix all these ingredients with pike fishing in the Catch & Release system and we have a complete fishing festival. Lapland Pike is an international competition designed to give maximum freedom to competitors on a huge fishing area in northern Sweden.
