Melkki is especially designed for catching sea trout. Me and Hissu have a boat on Helsinki shore and our first hot-spot is on the southern side of Island Melkki. Me and Hissu of course never caught a fish in there but our friend Kokko-Pentti from Lapland took 2-kilo trout on a second cast! This is my number one colour for sea trout!
Kaddi is Sami language and the name of our cottage in Lapland. Kaddi is a stimulus colour and works for pike, pike-perch and salmon. I tend to change the colours quite often and always test stimulus colours. And fishing should of course be as laid-back and natural as reggae music.
The first time I went to Hossa, located in the Regional Council of Kainuu, Finland, I was 6 years old, on 1974. Since then I've been visiting the place about twenty times. I got my first big trout from a rapid Lounatkoski with similar colour as this Hossa. In general I tend use red, black and copper colours when I'm fishing in Northern Finland.
Aarre is named after one of my fishing legends. It is a fine basic colour everywhere. If one cannot get a pike from a lake with this colour, there's something wrong with the fisherman!
