In my native Norway, fishermen have long relied on the bounty of the open seas and fjords to make a living. I love setting out on a traditional wooden fiskeskøyte and casting out my line the old-fashioned way: with a simple pole. But I have also tried my hand at fly fishing, which is much harder than it looks! Pulling crab traps filled with giant king crab is quite a sight and the story of how they reached Norway worthy of a spy novel! Originally introduced to the far northern Barents Sea by the Soviets as a food source for troops there, it made its way down Norway’s coast by the millions, so there are plenty of these unsuspecting crustaceans to lure into traps. Of course, the most rewarding part of any fishing expedition is savoring your catch around an open fire. Few culinary experiences compare to retiring to a native Sami tent back on land and feasting on a traditional king crab boil. During your clients’ upcoming port calls in Norway, I hope you will do as I did and take to the pristine waters and refreshing clean air of the splendid coast for a fun and immersive fishing expedition.
