Fortunes have varied wildly for salmon fishers in Norway recently.

What has happened to Norway's summer run?

As July merges into August, high summer into late-summer, a pattern has become established on Norway's sportfishing rivers. When a 2012 salmon is hooked it tends to be an older, bigger, river fish. Now, with the season ending two weeks tomorrow, from the Lakselva to the Orkla, the question is repeated: what has happened to Norway's summer run of medium sized salmon and grilse? And the newer, big fish, for that matter? ... Full story

A fisherman catches a huge salmon, but there is no witness and no photograph and only a rough measurement taken of the fish's length against a rod.

But how does such a catch go down in the history books? And what was the final verdict of a man who lives and breathes the River Dee, Ken Reid, Fisheries Development Officer of The Dee District Salmon Fisheries Board? ... Full story

The Ultimate Field Test - for a wading boot!

I have just returned from attending what was billed as the Ultimate Atlantic Salmon-fishing Course on Russia's Varzuga river. Apart from giving me the chance to catch numbers of salmon in a day that in Scotland one would hope for in a week (or month), the course gave me the perfect chance to test out for Fish and Fly, Patagonia's new Rock Grip (aluminium bar) wading boots and also their new wading Crampons too. ...
