Norway is arguably the spiritual home of the travelling salmon fisherman. For generations groups of intrepid rods took the boat to Bergen to see what they could find. And what they found was a stunningly beautiful country with abundant numbers of very large salmon.
Today the scenario is similar, but the destination is probably best for those fishermen who enjoy fishing beautiful fly water in exceptional scenery with the ever-present possibility of a 'lifetime' fish, rather than those after numbers of fish.
Norway affords aficionados and enthusiasts alike extraordinary fishing variety: it has more than 450 registered salmon rivers and there is something to suit everyone, from the rivers around the Trondheim fjord - which can be fished on the same day as leaving the UK - to fishing within the Arctic circle, which has a magic all of its own.
