Try to get a fight with the leg…wait for it…endary, legendary Arctic Char. We use a special drill to make a hole through the ice which can be over 1 meter thick. When the ice is safe on Lake Torneträsk we use a snowmobile to go to our special “catch the fish” place. Before it is safe to go on the big lake, we make our way by foot to some smaller lakes in the surrounding area. Smaller lake does not mean smaller fish.
