If you want to experience some of the best grayling fishing Sweden has to offer, the river Kaitum ar Tjuonajokk will take some beating. The destination for the Arctic Waters team in this episode is so remote, they have to be helicoptered in. Tjuonajokk in the north of Sweden is inside the Arctic Circle, and the team stay in a camp that offers only the most basic of facilities. Here emphasis is placed on nourishing one's soul and living at one with the environment, even if it is rugged and inhospitable. What is has got going for it, and the reason why it attracts so many visitors every year, is one of the last untouched rivers in the world, the Kaitum, which is famous for its Grayling. Needless to say the guys have a pretty special time and show exactly why grayling fishing at Tjuonajokk in Sweden is just so incredible. To watch this video now, just login or register
The intrepid Arctic Waters team head to Lakselv in northern Norway, ready to try their hand at a variety of fishing. First up they take a boat out into the Arctic Ocean hoping to catch some monster Cod or Halibut, however stormy waters force them back and they have to start fly fishing for Atlantic Salmon on the Lakselva River a little earlier than planned. This too proves tougher than they imagined, but even though the fish prove somewhat elusive, they all agree that it's still easy to enjoy a trip such as this, when the scenery is so beautiful and they are in good company.

Juhani Henriksson and his Arctic Waters team continue their fantastic trip to the awe inspiring Kharlovka on the Kola Penninsular in Russia. One of the guides 'Big Alex' has become a favourite with the guys and they spend a special day with him on a unique stretch of water, where they are into fish after fish. There's some great battles and plenty of ones that get away.

Two Beautiful Rivers
The pilot episode in a new series called Arctic Waters. In this episode the team visit two rivers in Northern Finland reknowned for their great fishing, the Tornio and the Ounas. This area is well set up for the travelling fisherman and their families with many lodges available during summer and it needs to be as Finland boasts the highest fishing participation level for fishing worldwide as over 50% of the population do so. The Ounas was once famed for salmon but due to obstacles the salmon no longer run but it remains a haven for trout and arctic grayling. The team and experts discuss the potential of the Ounas as a salmon river...could they thrive here again? The Tornio, on the other hand is possibly the most famous baltic salmon river in Finland with over up to 100,000 salmon spawning in the river each year. The rod catch isn't bad either with 10-20,000 caught on the river annually. The river is wide in places so must be fished with a boat but offers great opportunities for both fly and lure anglers. The show is presented in Finnish with English subtitles.
