Harbour, Stockholm

Fishing in the harbour of Stockholm is free and, if you’re lucky, you can catch world-class salmon beginning their run up the river.
I use the word harbour loosely. It is one of the prettiest places in the world.
If you’re unlucky, like me, you will catch the same two-inch perch with every single cast. This is a stunning location, and catching a perch every cast provided a lot of fun for the bystanders. I even let a couple of people catch the wretched thing themselves.
Saltwater pike are unique to this part of Sweden, and grow larger than their freshwater cousins.
The Swedish probably win the creative-things-to-do-with-herring award against stiff competition in Northern Europe. It would be a shame to leave Sweden without taking a few herrings along to a picklers, and making a few sweet-pickled roll-mop herrings.
