EPK - Lake-flyfishing for Whitefish by Mikko Halonen

This weeks fly-tying evening was themed around fishing for whitefish. Mikko Halonen came to present his wide range of knowledge about lake-flyfishing for whitefish. For the surprise of many, whitefish is at least as preferred fish to catch and eat in Finland as trout. However, fly-fishing for them is not a common way to catch them. We learned a lot about their habitat, behavior, seasonal considerations, and so on. Mikko Halonen was also introducing his books: Siikaperhoja and Perhokalastajan Harjus.The top of the icing was seeing his fly boxes and tying some flies with him.
