Fish the Gaula this June with Andy Murray

Andy Murray (holding the fish) and Chris Henshaw enjoy a June moment on the NFC's lower E beats.

For rods used to the UK’s 10.5-month-long salmon-fishing year the Gaula season is not the longest. But those three months of world-class fly-fishing from June 1 to August 31 bring the chance for British game-anglers of some notable highlights.

One of course is to connect via a 15ft fly rod with one of the Gaula’s solid Atlantic salmon, weighing anything from a 5lb grilse, through ‘medium-sized’ fish in the teens of poundsto the 20-30lb bruisers that will test your mettle – and tackle – to the limit and make your week truly memorable.

There is also the chance that a pull on your line will convert into a battle with Norway’s finest sportfish – a salmon in the 30s, 40s or even 50s of pounds.

Fish with Andy in Week 24

But another highlight for those heading out to fish at the Norwegian Flyfishers Club waters based around Støren this year for Week 24 (June 10-17) is the chance to fish with Andy Murray. The renowned and super-experienced salmon man (whose many credits include designing Hardy’s Swift series of rods) joins the NFC for one of the best weeks of the season. You will be able to get expert daily advice from Andy – and Chris Henshaw – free of charge!

There is currently good availability on Andy Murray’s June week and to join him contact the Norwegian Flyfishers Club via their Germany Office:
