130730-teno-1DX-70-200-1.4x-c3-RISL0559I tried to teach my sons salmon fly fishing at  Teno river, which is the best salmon river in Europe.  This summer has been very different, temperatures plus 20 for long periods.   If anglers like this weather salmons do not.  They get lazy and just sit in the deep pools in the river.  Anyway,  I think I was able to put some idea about this sport to my sons and their mates and hope to see them again at the river with long rods in their hands.  Most of the boats were also staying unoccupied.  These are used to take fishermen to the river.  Only locals can own and use these boats.  Salmon fishing tourism is  very important to local people here in the very north of Europe.  Utsjoki, Lapland.  FInland.
