GFN making dreams a reality.



No matter what level of experience you have, if you’re a keen shore angler but find it disheartening when lots of time, money and effort are exchanged for very little rewards, then a weeks fishing in Norway with GFN really could change all that for you.
You would fish every day in stunning surroundings alongside Norways best shore fishing guides. Fishing in some of the richest waters in Europe where our guests have already broken numerous European shore records, our goal is to not only offer good fishing, but to teach you the skills to make the most of your fishing whilst with us, and importantly these are skills you can use in the Uk.
All our guests come away with more than just happy memories, they take with them a new level of experience which they then put to good use at home. This means they waste less time in the UK chasing shadows, and spend less money doing so. We’ve had anglers who are only just beginning in the sport, all the way up to anglers who’ve fished for over 50 years, and each of them are amazed at how much they learn in just one week.
From the moment you book your holiday to the moment you arrive we are here to help and advise, because traveling to a different country and knowing what to bring is in itself a minefield. There’s just so many different types of fishing marks and so many species of fish to target, bringing the correct equipment in your luggage allowance is vital. But you also have the even easier option of hiring your equipment and specialist clothing when you’re with us, meaning you simply turn up with your basic clothing and your enthusiasm.
Add to this the fact that our relatively small amount of clients (about 10% of the current number of UK shore anglers who visit Norway each year) have caught more record breaking fish in a couple of years than everyone who’s tried doing this themselves then it’s obvious that if you want your best chance of a successful week then you should book with Guided Fishing Norway. We know of 2 records outside of GFN the last 3 years, whilst we’ve broken 10…!!
We’re at the forefront of research into new marks and new methods, with numerous methods now being adopted by people fishing in both the UK and in Norway. We take that as a massive compliment, and it strengthens our belief that we are leading the way. We have pioneered the deepwater fishing, and are now fishing marks successfully which only 3 years ago would of been classed as unfishable. Our understanding of baits and presentation, along with the knowledge of the marks has seen fish caught that were merely the stuff of dreams until recently.

On top of all this your holiday is an actual holiday. No more worrying about car hire, road tolls, driving on ice on the wrong side of the road, finding marks, bringing food, cooking food, bringing bait, running out of leads, etc, the list is endless. When you realistically look at what it costs to do everything yourself, plus the time you lose in your week driving from mark to mark, cooking and organising, then it’s a bit of a no brainer about what is the best value.
So if you’re thinking about improving your fishing and having a great time doing so, then get in touch with us we’ll start your journey on the path to success.

Cod Fishing in Norway, part 1


For many of the UK shore anglers there’s only one fish that really gets us all congregating on cold windy shorelines throughout the winter, and that’s the Cod.
We seem happy to spend hours staring at motionless rod tips with the rain or sleet lashing down into our faces, just for that one chance that a big hungry Cod will pick up our bait. We’ll stay out all night if that’s what it takes, wearing thermal layers and expensive waterproofs to keep us warm and dry.

Cod Fishing part 2


How often have you fished right next to someone and all they seem to do is pull in cod after cod, yet you cannot get a bite. You might even walk over to have a “nosey chat” with them, and enquire as to what bait, rig & method they are using. And quite often you here that they’re using similar bait, the same rig and even the same rod as you are!! How frustrating is that!!??
But delve a little deeper and you’ll often find that there are in fact subtle differences in the way they rig their baits, the way they set their lead into the tide, the way they notice the bites amongst the windy rod rattles and so in. in fact it’s the subtle differences that often set the better anglers apart from the average anglers. And when you make lots of subtle differences it can amount to a big difference, and the difference between success and failure.

Cod Fishing part 3

By John Strange12592335_342720405852239_9167743382852345188_n

One thing you have to remember when you stare at that photo of that massive cod, is that the captor didn’t simply step off of the plane in Norway, find somewhere that looked fishy, and simply proceed to catch that fish in an instant! Even in Norway, with the all important local knowledge and the right equipment and methods, it’s still a question of putting the hours in.

Deepwater Fishing part 1 , where it all began.

Deep water shore fishing – How I got hooked.     By Phill Hambrook 


A whole Bluey bait and 8oz lead left a big splash and the usual Bluey oil slick about 80 yards out in front of me. I held the rod straight out and played out line from the large fixed spool trying not to let it bow too much in the cross wind. The bait finally settled on the bottom after what seemed like an age had gone by. It actually took four and a half minutes. Continue reading
