Kaitum River Expedition

First week of August our Swedish -American group arrived for a week of rafting and fly fishing on the Kaitum River. One of the most beautiful rivers up here in northern sweden. Beside of a world class rafting in grade 3 -5 Kaitum offers great fishing for trout and grayling. We got a exiting week with great weather and fishing out of the ordinary, and the rafting through Unna kourtje and Lieteik kuika rapids were excellent. Enjoy the images taken by Mr J. Astrom.
