We are very excited to be able to offer you this new and exclusive fishing trip to Lake Sibbo in Sweden.

The Zander Workshop is the ideal opportunity for you to learn and experience the most up to date Zander tactics being used in Europe’s competition scene. Whether you are an experienced lure angler or a novice, this trip has been designed so that everyone will learn and hopefully catch a new PB Zander.

Your host and tutor for this three day fishing break is the well-known Swedish Competition angler Cecilia Grönberg aka Zander Queen. Cecilia has been ripping it up in predator competitions around Europe for the last couple of seasons and we have joined forces on her home water Lake Sibbo to bring you this unique experience.

Cecilia has been fishing since she could walk. Growing up next to a river and having her own boat from the age of ten has allowed her to build up the sort of experience and boat handling skills you would expect from someone twice her age!

Cecilia’s mastery of the method known as vertical sharpshooting and the exceptionally large Zander she has caught has earnt her the nick name Zander Queen. Cecilia’s continued success has captured the interest of several big industry Sponsors such as Catch With Care, Garmin, Ram-mounts and Crestliner Boats, so as you can imagine Cecilia’s guide boat is a thing  of beauty.  

Having the ability to hold an event like this at a world class Zander lake like Sibbo is a dream come true and we are very excited about the prospects of you and your fellow anglers pulling out some huge Zeds over the three days.

Below you can fine the intinary for this event:

Dates: 14/05/2020 – 18/05/2020

DAY 1:  Thursday Arrival

Depart from the UK (alternative routes available)

Arrive in Stockholm – Nykoping

Once you arrive at Nycoping Airport, you will make your way to the car hire desk to pick up your hire car. The hire cars have built in sat-navs so can find your way to the accommodation, which is approximately a 40 minute journey.

After checking into Baltic House and making yourself comfortable, there will be a scheduled meet and greet by one of the lake guides. This is your opportunity to ask any questions about the fourth coming days.

DAY 2: Friday Fishing Day

You and your fellow anglers will meet at the jetty where the fishing boats are moored. You will be introduced to your host and head guide Cecilia. Cecilia will talk you through a little bit more of what to expect from the next three days fishing and the techniques that you will be using.

If you haven’t already, this will be the time to pair up with a fishing partner who you will fish with over the next three days. Each pair will pick a number from a hat that will decide what order you will be in the boat with Cecilia. Each day will be split into morning and afternoon session with the change over at lunch, so depending on what number you have picked will choose the order that you fish. There is no need to worry about the order that you fish as you will have excellent instruction throughout the day no matter what boat you are on.

DAYS 3: Saturday Fishing Day

Depending where on the boats rota you and your fishing partner are will either already have had a session in the guide boat with Cecilia or it is now your turn. As your knowledge of the lake and the fish increases you can try a multitude of different lure fishing methods to try and target these colossal Zander. Anyone wanting to try and catch a big Pike or Perch within the three days can ask for guidance on the best methods and place to do so. Both species go to super-size in this lake so be prepared.

DAY 4: Sunday Fishing Day

On the third day you will be accustomed to the lake and will have fine turned the methods that catch big predators so you and your fishing partner will likely want to explore a bit more of the lake. When you are on your own boat you can either stick near Cecilia and fish the same area or you can go off and explore some of the hidden corners of the lake as they all produce big fish.

DAY 5: Monday Departure

On the last day you will check out of your accommodation, take your hire car back to the airport and depart from Nykoping.
