    Think reasons, not seasons

    Spring awakening

    Norway connoisseurs already know that there are plenty of fishing and outdoor adventures on offer in March and April in the fjords and by the coast.

    Golden autumn

    The autumn months of September and October are also great for a fishing holiday in Norway, because at this time the water is teeming with all the saltwater fish species you may wish for.

    Safety tips to leave you high and dry

    Keep these rules of thumb in mind whenever you are on or by the water:

    1. Think safety at all times. Planning reduces risk.
    2. Bring necessary equipment, make sure it is in good condition and easily accessible.
    3. Respect the sea and the weather. Only go out in a boat when it is safe.
    4. Know the rules of the sea, and make sure to follow them.
    5. Wear life jackets or other flotation devices.
    6. Be rested and sober. Do not operate a boat while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
    7. Be considerate, and remember that safety, the environment, and the well-being of everybody is a common responsibility.
