LAst summer I was fishing in Sweden and in the airport, I met some danish fisherman who had just returned from 2 weeks of fishing in Norway, and they commented on how they used to be able to fish at home, but due to some reason (which escapes me) their bug population had been so depleted that trout almost ceased to exist so now they had to travel to fish. If I recall, I think they had also been over run by something like a loon, that was non native and was crushing fish stocks.

I would highly recommend Arctic Sweden.

This is not good news for a hobby largely based on the imitation of insects to catch fish.
More “settled science” for the deniers.
