IFC – Fly Fishing Courses

Fly Fishing Courses with Bernd Kuleisa - Season 2017

For season 2017 the IFC will again offer a fly fishing school with the salmon fisher and author Bernd Kuleisa. The course will be in week 31 and 32 season 2017. Due to the high demand we recommend to get in touch with us a soon as possible.

These courses offer a good chance to get the best start into salmon fishing on the exclusive fly only rotation beats of the Norwegian Flyfishers Club. Bernd Kuleisa will show you over the course of a week how to cast and how to fish. Our rotation beats and Bernd’s knowledge will make this course a good combination both for beginners and for the skilled salmon fisher who has never fished our beats before.

The focus of the course will be practical fishing; everything you learn in the lessons you will then do directly in practising it. Our varied pools are perfect to learn how to fish for salmon in all situations. In this course you will learn everything you need to be a successful salmon fisher. There is a good chance of catching one or more salmon during the course week – and Bernd will do everything to make your dream of catching a Gaula Atlantic salmon come true.

On the following days Bernd will come to you on the river bank and show you individually for one or two hours how to fish the beat. Based on the existing water situation Bernd will explain to you the right tactic to use and you will then try to catch your first salmon. Bernd will not be your guide for the week but he will try to explain you how to fish successfully for Atlantic salmon.
