The terminal tackle and bits is pretty straight forward. You will need the following at a minimum –

  • Large shads. The Savage Gear cutbaits are the best. I would recommend a minimum of 4 packets per person. The best colours are Herring, Redfish, Puffin and Glow.
  • Braid. 50lb to 80lb is generally seen as an average strength. The Power Pro is the best we sell at £29.99. They also do a Power Pro Depth hunter which allows you to find out what depth of water the fish are at and get straight back to them on the next drop. We do have other braids in stock from £16.99 (Spiderwire EZ Braid) that will definitely do the job.
  • Swivels. Okuma Norweigan snaps and Gerrys size 2 power swivels are all you will need.
  • Leader/Snoods. I would recommend you use Stren Flurocarbon. Its quite pricey at £9.99 per spool but its bloody good stuff and wont let you down.
  • Rigs. We do a selection of high quality rigs specifically made for Norway, (Minimum 4 rigs per person) They all target the fish in different ways. There is an effective live bait rig where you hook a small coal fish first on a grub and there is a bigger hook above it for the Cod that eats your bait fish. The best rig we sell is the Imax Nordic Squid rig. It has a flashing light in the end of the squid. They are deadly.
  • Pirks/Jigs. (Minimum 4 Jigs) You will need a selection of Chomat Pirks,  Sea bouncers and Williamson Abyss Jigs. All around the 300G weight. The colours dont make much difference out there its mainly the action they produce. You will also need Strong Split rings.
  • Hooks. Trebles make sure they are 10/0 or 12/0. Assist hooks stay with the 8/0 size.
 You donâ?™t need to buy mountains of terminal tackle because its rare that you loose anything because you wont fish at the bottom but the above is a good start.
