Water is always close by in Finland, the Baltic Sea and our numerous lakes and rivers make fish a staple all year round. In the summer, however, most people enjoy catching their own fish with nets or fishing rods. If you are not a local you need a license, though lure fishing is free for everyone. Cast a line and try your luck, or find some fish from you local fisherman at the market. When cooking your fish keep it simple by just frying or grilling it, or try smoking it in a box or grill.
