Hola Fly Fishing
This part of the Hola river is ideal for fly fishing, it varies between rapids and quiet stretches. You will find hatches of many different may flies and sedge, if you’re lucky you can also encounter H. Danica (Mayfly) on this river. The river is also easy accessible from the road.
The Hola fly fishing zone begins at the bridge at Holøyen and runs down to the bridge at Nordre Sønmør (See map).
