Upcoming Seminars and Events
Norwegian Flyfishers Club Roadshow Event
Join us for a presentation on fly fishing in Norway. Enrico Cristiani, General Manager of Norwegian Flyfishers Club, will be discussing fly fishing on the Gaula River.
Enrico grew up in Italy, fly fishing in the Italian Alps, Slovenia, and Austria. He was first introduced to salmon fishing while working in the Scottish borders, which soon led him to begin fishing the famous rivers of Norway. He combines his passion for the outdoors and fly fishing with his background in hospitality and hotel management in his position at Norwegian Flyfishers Club.
