Fly fishing for pollack in the Norwegian archipelago comes far behind sea run brown trout, unfortunately. For me they’re a hidden treasure, often found in far greater numbers than other fish and the medium to large fish give a very impressive fight.

Salmon fishing and guiding in Mandalselva was what Sebastiaan, his brother and father wanted to experience during their first visit to Norway.
