Salmon Run & Rock’n’Roll in Finnmark


Salmons are not just fishes. They are the fly anglers biggest dreams. The biggest possessions. The biggest passion. Just you, rod and autumn stream. You are standing in this ideal harmony of nature and waiting for your fish. Waiting for the Salmon Run. You are in a Salmon Paradise. And in sudden moment you are running after the fish of you life!  Sprint in knee deep water and little bit of swim! Nostalgic video from  Juuso Syrjä with a spirit with good old rock’n’roll! Perfect video!

Salmon Run

From the filmmakers:

Normally salmon run means: “The salmon run is the time when salmon, which have migrated from the ocean, swim to the upper reaches of rivers where they spawn on gravel beds.”
In Finnmark it means that fly fisher is running after the salmon for over 1 kilometer of rapids.

Fly fisher Jasper Pääkkönen had epic salmon run at Finnmark in August 2014 with #6 rod. By the time the camera went on it’s obvious that the fisherman was more exhausted than the fish after a little swim and a 400 meter sprint in knee deep water – both of which there were more to come…

Music: “Love Is All” – The Tallest Man On Earth.
