(Fly)fishing Norway - Help needed

I'm in need of some help. I'm thinking of a fishing trip with 2 friends to Norway. I'm planning to go the end of June 2008 to [url=, the area [url= Is there anyone who can give me some advice about the fishing over there, i can't find much on the inet over that area. If anyone has other/better options please tell me, got plenty of time left until we go :D
Thanks in advance.

Allright then, in 2 weeks i'm off with 2 friends to norway, not to the area mentioned above but the []Plahte Estate[/url]. Since I've never been this far up north in Norway i don't know what to expect. I was hoping if anyone can give me some advice on flies, especially the right sizes. Here in Holland i fish mostly with small sizes (16-20) but this seems a little small to me for Norway. Any other tips are highly appreciated, i haven't got much experience with fishing in moving water.

Thanks in advance and best regards,

I’m going to Trysil, Norway this summer to fish in the Trysil river, asked for advise on this forum, and was given this link: Hope it will give you some help. Seems we are going to fish mostly dry flies, after advise from a guide I have made arrangements with in Trysil. Elkhair caddis and Europa 12 should be some fine flies.. Size 10-16.

Safe journey
