We do not have one single stocked fish here. All fish are wild, meaning they were born and raised in these waters. So the trout might be different to what your are used to, specifically in fighting power.

Are there Grayling too?

We do not have grayling but a trip to Swedish waters with good Grayling can be arranged.
