Tore Flåten ( left) and Bjarnulf Helgeland wish you welcome to an enjoyable stay in the valley.
In "Kjerringhølen" we have an exclusive wilderness camp with "lavvo" tent and all you need for a good time by the river !
Who are we? WaterProof Flyfishing was founded in 2002 and is run by Tore Flåten and Bjarnulf Helgeland. We know the river better than most people in the Numedalen valley.
We give fly fishing courses in one and two hand rods. We also guide individuals and groups that are interested in salmon fishing in the river Numedalslågen ( upper part mostly)
For companies we also can offer fishing trips for groups, including fishing, dinner by the river etc.
We are flexible and can arrange fishing trips with instruction / guiding of your interest.
News 2011 Fishing start 10 june, and last until 31 august.
Waterproof has this year rented two very good pools.
This is "Rien Pool" and "Grini Pool" Rien is a are fished from the bank. Maximum 8 licences. Reasonable prices. ( NOK 350 per licence)
Grini is fishing with boat or from land. This area was used every summer by rich English men from end of the 18 century until the first world war. Until this year it has been private. Price start at NOK 6000 for two days fishing. Gillie cost in addition. Includes one cabin and boat.
Where are we? We have our base in the southern part of Norway at Brufoss/Svarstad in Vestfold. Here we fish for salmon from June to mid September. This is the upper part of the river, and house the best fly fishing areas in this part of Norway.
Day licences cost from NOK 200-400 per day. If you are an experienced flyfisher and only need some guiding for an hour or two, we are pleased to help you! We can also make bookings for you at different locations / pools included start guiding.
We really know the river and have lots of contacts, that makes it possible to vary fishing location and accomodation to fit your needs!
