Good fishing


Catch of the day on the Vilppula Route

Finland is the blue land of thousands of lakes. The Tampere Region, located in the western part of the Lake District, offers a diverse range of fishing sites to suit every taste.

This video will show a tiny part of the opportunities that our region offers to fishing enthusiasts and holiday makers. Fishing for pike, zander, brown trout and some other game fish species in the big lakes and rapids is introduced. During the 25 minutes fishing trip we will meet a group of professional fishing guides and see some holiday cottage sites in the Tampere Region. The film begins with a two minute trailer that contains the highlights.
