FTK in English

FTK is a fishing team operating from the capital of Finland Helsinki and it’s surrounding areas.

FTK Fishing

Fishing in Finland is great since living in a country with population density of 15 inhabitants per square kilometer leaves the country rich with unspoiled northern nature.

FTK is into regular reel fishing, hard-core trolling is not our thing. Bass fishing in the US would be quite close to what we do.

FTK fishes mainly for the following species:

  • Northern Pike (Esox lucius)
  • European Perch (Perca fluviatilis)
  • Sea Trout (Salmo trutta trutta)
  • Pikeperch/Zander/European Walleye (Sander lucioperca)

Occasionally bait fishing also gives some examples of the following species:

  • Whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus)
  • Roach (Rutilus rutilus)
  • Bream (Abramis brama)
  • Ruffe (Gymnocephalus cernuus)

And we always hope to get a Fourhorn Sculpin (Triglopsis quadricornis).
