Hello from Norway

Greetings flyfishers. I am 25 y.o and study wilderness management at Hedmark University College, south-east in Norway. It is lokated on the banks of river Glomma. The place is great for grayling, a species I had never landed until I came here in august. My personal rec so far is 44cm, but I think it would be possible to pass 50cm. The average size caught on a dry is 25-35cm, and on a normal 4hour day you pass 30 landed fish with ease. The river holds brownies, pike and lots of other species to, but because of many dams both up and downstream, "my" area holds mostly grayling. This si a d*mn shame, since I prefer trout, char and salmon - the most common flyfishing targets in my home waters up north.

If anyone need tips/advice about fishing in Norway, I might be able to help.
