Ryda is located in "Kindabygden" (Kinda) in the southern province of Östergötland and belongs to the municipality of Rimforsa.

It is therefore not strange that there are many nature reserves in this region that enjoy a protected status.
The large lake Åsunden has an area of almost 6000 hectares and a maximum depth of 64 meters. The presence of interesting underwater structures makes it ideal for fishing. Perfect fishing for perch, pike perch and pike as well as eel, bream, roach and its own population of salmon trout swims around here. The lake has many islands and bays where pike like to stay in the not too deep water. At the same time, a water map is a standard item that is provided when renting a boat. Åsunden is a perfect lake for fishing. The main target is pike, but pike perch is also regularly caught here. You can fish here with max 2 rods per person if you are in possession of the 'all inclusive Åsunden Fishing Permit'. This is not too crazy priced at 80 euros per week.
The deeper parts in the middle and east of the lake are perfect for trolling. Especially in the warmer summer months, depths of 4 to 8 meters are ideal. In the autumn there is even a little deeper fishing. On the shallower parts the most used technique is casting with jerks, lures, crankbaits or also with the fly. From January you can also go ice fishing here. You may only bring fish (2 maximum and from 55 to 80 cm) "that is eaten the same day". This makes that the fish stock is well controled and for us as fishermen perfect for fishing. Good numbers of fish are caught and the stock has been at a very good level for years.
