Next Wednesday sees online bids open for salmon fishing lots

The online auction offers the chance to fish for some of Norway’s big salmon on legendary beats.

The 17th NASF Norway Auction in support of wild Atlantic salmon will be held in Oslo and online on Wednesday, November 9, 2022.

The North Atlantic Salmon Fund was originally set up by environmental campaigner, Orri Vigfusson, who set up the ongoing commercial fishing agreements with the Faroese and Greenlanders to allow free passage of the bulk of the North Atlantic run.

As ever, the auction is filled with great fishing opportunities, superbly tied flies and other fishing lots.

There are opportunities for one rod and more, for between two and six days, and featuring the famous rivers and beats on Gaula, Stjordal, Morrum, Orkla, Aa, Namsen, Alta and many other, lesser-known rivers, many at the peak times of early June and into July. Prices range from 2500 NOK (£212) to 150,000NOK (Two 18-hour sessions on the legendary Alta in July for one rod [which can be shared by three anglers] at £12,750).

This year, some of the lots in the auction have been translated into English, instead of making two separate catalogues. All foreigners are welcome to place bids on all lots with Norwegian text as well. A quick guide to basic Norwegian here: Value (verdi), number of rods (stenger), number of fishing days (fiskedøgn) and timeframe (tidsrom).
