Fishermen like to share their catch or experiences from the Beiar river. In this photo competition, if you win, you can choose either the legendary Abu Garcia golden reel, or the infamous Cascapedia by Hardy. Everyone who enters the competition are in the running for some extra prizes. Share your pictures and participate!

If you want to swing by to look at either the golden Abu reel, or the handmade Hardy beauty, they’re both at the salmon office. If you’re lucky, and you have some great pictures to enter with, you can pick which one if want - provided you win! Photo: salmon host

We need some good pictures to use on our website. These can represent one of the zones, show the beauty of our river, or maybe capture the feeling of catching a salmon! Photos from the river or shelters are also important, so any photo representing something that has to do with salmon fishing in the Beiar river is great!

Legendary prizes

IMG 20200723 154932To make even the most hardcore fishermen put their rods away to look for last year’s, or even yesterday's pictures, we needed some insane prizes. We really went all out, and got two legendary reels. You can pick which one you want, provided you win the competition. One is the gold plated Abassadeur 5500 CDL for the lure fishermen. The other one is probably the world’s most famous salmon fly reel - Hardy Cascapedia, made by P. Lundy in England. Both are incredibly expensive, high quality and worthy prizes for Norway’s best salmon river’s photo competition. Many choose to have these prizes on their shelf, maybe as decoration, while others can hardly wait to cast with them. The winner will choose for themselves, which reel and what to do with it.

Extra prizes

For everyone to have a chance at winning something, we chose to add an Abu Garcia Elite Max 60 spinning reel as an extra prize for all participants. We also added 10 extra prizes for juniors from Norway. Ten young fish photographers have the chance to win a Abu Koster salmon lure each, as well as the spinning reel and the main prize. This is sure to give our youth some incentive!

Det er viktig å ikke bare tenke poseringsfoto med stor og flott laks. Laksefiske er så mye mer, og vi verdsetter komposisjon, bildekvalitet, stemning og hva bildet representerer når vi bedømmer bildene. Her er et av bildene som allerede brukes på nettsidene og som kunne ha vært en god kandinat. Foto: Tommy Egra, SNVF
