Delegations with different cultural and environmental backgrounds will surely have diverse and lively debate during the gathering. The participants will have a practical orientation to the special characteristics of traditional river rapids fishing in Torne river and learn to know local fishing communities.


To find out more

about the Festival, it's programme and enrollment instructions please visit Summer, Whitefish & Torne river project pages.


The first international fishing festival in 2014 was conceptualized by a commercial fisherman Olli Klemola (Pälkäne, Finland), because there was a need to exchange information directly between different fishing regions and especially commercial fishermen. Snowchange Cooperative (www.snowchange.org) started to coordinate the events.

The second festival took place in September 2016 in Zigansk, Lena river, Yakutia, Siberia, and gathered together more than 100 professional fishermen from different countries.
