Norway August 2020 Trip Date is Week 32, 01/08-08/08 (One Place Left on this Week) 

We will arrive to Trondheim Vaernes airport in Norway on 1st August 2020. The drive is approximately 50 minutes on very quiet roads from the airport to the Guesthouse Aunemo where we will be staying in single rooms for the week (http://www.salmonfishing-norway.com/unterkunft.htm). We will be taking a maximum of 6 people on this trip and suggest that the car hire is split between two people, if possible. If you are travelling on your own then we will try to arrange that other single rods travelling group together in pairs as you will be fishing in pairs for the week.

The disinfection of your equipment will take place at the farm by Bjorn the Fishery manager on arrival and will cost each person 150 NOK which is about € 15. You will also need to purchase a national fishing licence which will cost € 55 on arrival.

The fishing week begins on Saturday at 20.00 and ends on the following Saturday 08.00. In Norway it is light quite late and bright early at this time of year so you really can ‘try’ to fish all day and night if you wish. The fishing is on a beat rota system with 5 beats and you will change each beat normally every 12 hours.

 

Unguided fishing

The fishing is unguided however the beats are easy to find and also easy to read for experienced anglers. Each beat has a maximum of two rods fishing. Glenda and Noel will be there to help and I will be working with each group of 2 for a number of morning sessions during the week with some tuition and guiding. This I will also work on a rota system.

Aunemo Guesthouse is a very old beautiful wooden house and has everything we need. It has a very relaxed atmosphere and breakfast will be provided each morning at 8am. The rest of the day it is up to each person to make a packed lunch, dinner or whatever you would prefer. There is a super kitchen with all cooking equipment required and a nice place to enjoy meals. There are also numerous restaurants and shops in the area.

The total cost of the Accommodation, Salmon Fishing, and my guiding/tuition as outlined above for the week is € 2500 per person. 50% non refundable deposit is required on booking and the balance is due by the end of March 2020.

I am happy to answer any questions that you may have. Here is a little clip of some video that Noel took during our trip.
