NEW FOR 2018

Pinetree lodge apartments feature a very spacious living room / lounge area, with stunning forest views, overlooking a beautiful forest lake teeming with Brown Trout, Arctic Char and Perch that guests can fish for throughout their stay. As part of the living room there is a sofa area, dining table, log burning stove and modern fitted kitchen with fridge freezer. There are 2 large twin bedrooms that can be shared as a group of 4 in one apartment or 2 guests can take one apartment to use as single rooms.

The main lodge is just a short walk away from the apartments, featuring a dining room for up to 60 guests also open to locals, with a bar, lounge and lake view porch. Guests can choose to take advantage of the restaurant services or self catering at the apartments. The main stem Lainio river is just a short drive away where there is 32km of double bank fishing available, plus there is additional access to the surrounding tribuatry streams and some lakes.

After a hard days fishing you can return to the warm, dry and invitingly relaxing lodge / apartments before maybe having one last cast out on the lake.


Single Hand Rods - favourites are 9’0 #4 & 10’0 #5, however 8’6”#3, 9’0 #4, 9’0 #5, 9’0 #6, 10’0 #5, 10’0 #6 are all good. Switch Rods - 11’0 #5 or 11’0 #6 class can be great for anglers who struggle with single handers or want to target other species.
Double Hand Rods - 13’0 #8, 14’0 #9 & 15’0 #10 can be worth having if you wish to target the Baltic Salmon.


Weight forward lines in the correct weight class for the rod you are using. Floating, Float / Inter & full intermediate are all worth a go depending the situation you are presented with. Heavier flows in the main stem river may require heavier lines if you like fishing light streamers or nymphs at distance. For Salmon we reccomend Versi tip lines or shooting heads from floating down to S3.


6-9 feet tapered leaders with a 3-6 lbs breaking strain. We often use straight mono from spools for shorter leaders including both Nylon and Fluorocarbon depending on the water column we are trying to fish in. Salmon tapered leaders should be 12-17 feet in length and typical breaking strain of 15-30lbs either nylon or fluorocarbon.

The most effective method is nymphing in classic colours and pink & purples seem to do very well. Grayling also regularly take streamers large or small, classic dry patterns in some cases and some of the best action comes from foam skaters in riffled water. Popular Salmon flies include: Banana - Phatakorva - Sunray - The Usual - Willie Gunn - Kinermony Killer - Beiss - Black & Chartruese


Layers are definitely the key! You will need warm underwear and thick socks wool is the best, a warm hat and a warm down or Primaloft jacket for the cold evenings, waders and a wading jacket or any other type of shell jacket.


Mosquito spray or roll on repellent such as "Jungle Oil" or “Mygga” is strongly advised. A wading staff is always good to have on hand and a camera for the special moments!
