When I was in Vadstena I saw alot of people fishing for crayfish. Fathers were teaching their children how to fish for the tasteful crayfish while mothers were reading a book or just enjoying the sun.
Since 1878 fishing for crayfish before August 7th was forbidden by law to allow the crayfish to mature. Although the ban on fishing crayfish was removed in 1994, old traditions die hard. Most Swedes still wait until after August 8th, both to fish and eat crayfish.
