I’m in the process of putting together a big event to be held here on Replot in May next year and so went down to Eumer Pro fishing Accessories (Fishing Center) on Friday to talk to them about coming on board as a sponsor and came away with so much more than I could have ever imagined.

Eumer was started by Jaakko & Ollie Ojamo and their head office is situated smack bang on Merikarvia river found on the west of Finland. To say this place is one of the most stunning fishing lodges in the world is an understatement. The main building which dates back to the early 1900’s, used to be an old Lumber mill and build over the river itself & one can literally lie on your bed at night and listen to the rushing water pass under the building. Its been completely renovated into a complete all inclusive fishing lodge with a full time guide as well.

It accommodates and can fully outfit approximately 20 people and features a conference room with all the mod cons, A fantastic dining hall, A new sauna room which includes showers, relaxation room and a stunning terrace. Guests are also given exclusive access to 600m of prime river fishing where they can target Rainbow trout, Salmon & Sea trout. Or alternatively one can float tube the lower reaches of the river near its mouth for large pike and Perch.

As well as the centre, Eumer have their factory here where they not only produce probably some of the best fly tying materials available on the market but also Develop, Manufacture and stock one of the largest ranges of tube fly accessories in the world today. There aren’t that many places in the world where one can test new equipments, as well as receive expert advise before parting with your well earned cash, especially in such picturesque environment. This attention to detail is the reason why its not uncommon for people to travel hundreds of kilometers to visit the Merikarvia site.

Anyway not to disclose to much just yet but Myself, Eumer & Baltic pike flies will be working much closer together from now on and am looking forward to also adding a new tours package to’s site in the very near future which will incorporate Fishing here around Replot Island as well as some Piking, Trout, Salmon and Sea trout fishing on the Merikarvia river as well.

Thank you Jaakko for being so positive and seeing there is definitely a growing market for pike on the fly around the world. I look forward to working much more closely with Eumer in the future.
