Vildmannanappet – Winter fishing Contest

The largest anual fishing competition in Storuman is named Vildmannanappet (Roughly translated as “Wildman Fishcatch”). This particular engagement is arranged by the PR association Vildmannen. Prizes awarded are for the biggest fish, best fishing chair, outfit, and strongest hook. There is also a lottery each year.

The fishing competition, always organized by Boxan in Stensele, begins with a blessing along with a few words by a priest.
