Go where the fish bite
You put the lure on the hook and throw in the float. Small rings start to form on the water surface creating temporary impressions in the glassy lake. The only thing remaining now is to wait. You can lean back and take a look at the surroundings. The lake is embedded in beautiful nature and no human being is in sight. The calmness appears, the body unwinds. You have time to reflect and take time in the surrounding silence. Suddenly, the fishing-line begins to strain, the float makes a dive under the surface and now your focus is targeted towards whatever is hooked on the other end of the line. Maybe, you will have freshly grilled bass for supper?
In Hagfors municipality, there are plenty of beautuiful places where you can guard your float, regardless if you are a beginner or a pro. Fish grayling, salmon or trout in the lively Klarälven, the spine of the municipality and Sweden´s longest river. Angle for bass, pike and whitefish in enchanting forest lakes. Winter is the perfect time for ice fishing. There´s nothing like the nature experience that the fisherman gets on a sunny winters day when the ice is thick and Jack Frost has embedded the landscape with a soft, white cover of snow.
Before you try your fishing luck remember to buy a fishing license. With the fishing license for the municipality you are allowed to fish in most lakes of diverse nature and the part of Klarälven that runs through Hagfors municipality. If you are under 16 years old you fish for free. You also get a map over the lakes included in the license. Do you want to fish in other waters, you buy a local fishing license. Here you can buy the municipal fishing license online.
