Sport Fishing & New Zealand – treat yourself!
Sund Folk College in Central Norway has developed a brand new study into the art of Sport Fishing. The college is located next to the Trondheim Fjord, holding more than 110 different species. The teacher, Eskil Roekke is a Fish biologist, Wildlife ranger and Filmmaker who has spent more than 4 years in New Zealand. He has fished the oceans, fjords, rivers and lakes of central Norway for decades.
Central Norway is also known for it’s salmon rivers, freshwater lakes and fantastic big game fishing at sea. During the year students will learn how to target different species using both new and old techniques.
Included in the school year is a 4-week study trip to the Angling paradise, New Zealand. Once there we will hunt trophy trout in gin clear rivers, target massive eels that can grow up to 40 kg and fish for sharks and kingfish from the shores. The students will spend time with the natives of New Zealand, the Maoris, studying their ways of harvesting food from nature and preparing their catch using old traditional techniques. During the 4 weeks we will make our way trough most of the country. It will, no doubt be an epic road trip.
As well as the new study in Sport Fishing, Sund Folk College has International focus and a broad variety of subjects students can choose from: Jazz, Photography, United Nations and Norwegian nature & culture are amongst the other studies Norway’s oldest Folk College offers.
The students will live and study at the majestic old school, but must have an interest for the outdoors as many days and nights will be spent outdoors. Sleeping in tents and under the open sky will be our “everyday” this year.
The study in Sport fishing is open for international students wanting to spend a year focusing on their interest while learning about the Norwegian and the New Zealand way of life.
Join us for a fairy-tale of a year!
