Guiding Service – Making your Fishing Holiday an Experience to Remember

MLGuiding is Mika’s guiding service – making your fishing holiday an experience to remember. 

In a past life Mika worked in the Finnish Army as a training officer and in 2009 started his guiding services. 

Mika is a passionate fly fisherman and he has turned his dear hobby into a guiding service which will help you during your trip. (Also snowmobiling is one of his passions and he can organize long distance/few days trip to Sweden and Russia!)

It doesn’t matter if you are beginner or advanced fisherman, Mika can help you right at the start or give you some new approaches to your casting or fishing techniques. 

Kuusamo area is familiar because he lives there but also in Swedish and Finnish Lapland there are waters which he has been fishing for over 20 years. Mika’s knowledge is legendary and over the years he has built a network of companies and guides to provide the very best possible service for you. 

Ammanäs or Kiruna in Sweden or Varzina in Russia alongside rivers in Kuusamo are his home.

Reviews from guests

“Excellent experience with Mika during our stay in Ruka. Mika is a knowledgeable instructor and guide. He was able to tailor a package that perfectly fit my description. The equipment and arrangements were spot on, locations perfect and had a great time catching fish” -Casey Gedmintas, Varkaus, Finland

“Booking a fishing guide from abroad for a place you have never visited before is a bit like gambling. You wont know what you get until it’s over. In my case it was an excellent bet! Mika clearly knows his waters inside out and is more than happy to share with you his vast experience. He was constantly on the move scouting for the next good spots and to my greatest surprise, he was always right!
Thanks to the great guiding I have spent two wonderful days of fly fishing despite challenging weather conditions!. I’ll definitely return to the beautiful Finnish Lapland for fly fishing and Mika will certainly be my first go to guy!”
– Chauvan Nguyen, Switzerland
” I think it  has been very smart to use Mikas services: He shows us great fishing spots, bring us to the river, fixes permits,  gives advice how to fish and last but not least the maintenance during fishing session is excellent. Of course it won’t matter that Mika is very nice guy and we get along very well during those trips.”
– Chairman of the fishing club Shemeikka, Mika Mäkinen, Finland
