Welcome to Havsöringsträff Åland 22-23.4.2022

After a break of several years the arrangement of Havsöringsträff Åland was resumed last year.  The 2021 – happening was a smaller “test event” i.a. due to the ongoing pandemic. Ahead of Havsöringsträff Åland 2022 some adjustments will be made i.e the FishyLive app will be used. The event will grow into a larger, well-established event that already now welcomes participants both from home and away! The event will be arranged according to the rules and restrictions that apply at the time of the event!

Hope to see you at Havsöringsträff Åland 2022!
