We welcome all hunting and fishing enthusiasts to visit the Saimaan Erämessut fair that will be held in the town of Lappeenranta from 23rd to 24th of May 2015.
There is going to be plenty to see and do for the whole family. Those that are interested in fishing will have the opportunity to visit our stand and get to know fishing with fish traps. We will answer your questions, give valuable advice, demonstrate various types of fish traps, and present our latest gear.

We would like to welcome everyone interested in fishing to participate in the fish trap world championship 2015 that will be held at Nurmes from 16th to 17th of May, 2015.
The participants will be divided into groups of men, women, and children. You can also participate on a team basis. It will be an exciting event for the whole family
You don’t have to bring your own fish trap, as one can be rented at the competition. And if for some reason you are unable to attend in person, you can send your personal information by email, pay the participation fee and thus be a part of the championship.
The first ever fish trap championship was held in 1993 at Korpilahti, and since then it has gained popularity not only with Finns, but also with participants from Sweden, Estonia and Russia.
The all-time biggest championship catch belongs to Jani Lindgren, weighing in at 58kg 120g, caught with a basic katiska fish trap. This record has so far remained undefeated. We are looking forward to seeing you and your team, and hope to see new records!
You can also announce your participation on the spot, before 13:00.
