NORWAY GENERAL INFORMATION & RIVERS. New WhereWiseMenFish destinations

Norway is home to what was probably the largest Atlantic Salmon ever to have been discovered. In years gone by fish have been caught that dwarf the British rod caught record fish of 64lbs and substantially larger fish have been found and recovered from nets. Today the story is no different with opportunities to catch some very large fish from a number of Norwegian rivers.

Norway Fly Fishing: The Aunun Lodge

SALMON FISHING: ORKLA RIVER – AUNAN BEAT

The Orkla River is one of Norway’s best salmon rivers and the stretch at Aunan provides some of the most enchanting fly-fishing water available. If the river is seductive then the same can be said for the surroundings in equal measure. Nestled into a tranquil but steeply sloped valley, surrounded by mature woodland and well kept farms and secluded from major roads or railways this is as much a retreat as it is a great salmon river.
