Verdals Elva as its Known in Norwegian has been an established Salmon fishing river for many decades and as any local will tell you its one of the top five rivers of the the Trondheims fjord. Each season the Verdal River produces large Salmon to 40lb.

The beat we have chosen to work with in 2016 is the Tingvold Lodge. Owned and managed by John Olav Oldren, a fantastic guy that really has a passion for Salmon fishing. John spent his childhood growing up on the rivers edge and working on the lodge that he took over from his Family.

The beat that is on offer is on offer is a 2 KM stretch on both banks.

Tingvold lodge is a very relaxing loge to stay at.  There are no restrictions on times when you can fish. On the Home pool which is 100m from your bed there is a lovely small grass roofed hut to relax in and just watch the river pass you bye.
