Fishing in Finland 20.3.1991

As the country with the most waters in the whole world, Finland offers diverse opportunities for catching various species of fish. As much as 10% of Finland's surface is covered by water. It is just as easy to go fishing on the outskirts of a city as on a lake in the wilds.
The Fishing stamp booklet was issued on 1991 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Federation of Finnish fisheries associations (in Finnish "Kalatalouden Keskusliitto"). The stamps represent both professional and recreational fishing:
1. Fly fishing of trout
2. Fishing perch
3. Crabbing
4. Trawling baltic herring
5. Planting whitefish (perhaps "planting" is a good word for this action of putting small fish into a lake where they will grow?)

This nice FDC was given to me by Rene from Holland.
