Norwegian Flyfishers Club is dedicated to protect and advocate for the growth of wild Atlantic salmon stocks not only on the Gaula River but globally. Environmental and human impact are some of the main threats to wild Atlantic salmon today. NFC works with a number of organizations to not only protect, but to promote the increase in wild Atlantic salmon populations. We are proud to collaborate with the following organizations.

Atlantic Salmon Federation (ASF)
"The Atlantic Salmon Federation is working wherever there are Atlantic salmon in North America, out at sea, and internationally. The Atlantic Salmon Federation is dedicated to the conservation, protection and restoration of wild Atlantic salmon and the ecosystems on which their well being and survival depend."
NFC is proud to support our conservation neighbors across the Atlantic in their efforts to protect and sustain wild Atlantic salmon. Human and environmental impact on wild Atlantic salmon is blind - they do not discriminate between North American, Norwegian or Russian Atlantic salmon, therefore we all have to work together to protect this precious resource.http://www.asf.ca
North Atlantic Salmon Fund (NASF)
"Restoring Atlantic salmon to their natural adundance."
"The North Atlantic Salmon Fund campaign to restore salmon stocks is winning! Nothing beats common sense, the right priorities and ABUNDANCE as the target. Ending mixed-stock netting has always been a priority as well."
NFC is proud to support the NASF and Orri Vigfusson in their fight to protect wild Atlantic salmon.
Patagonia is an environmentally conscious outdoor clothing and equipment brand that NFC is proud to have partnered with for 2013 onwards!
"Patagonia wants to be in business for a good long time, and a healthy planet is necessary for a healthy business. We want to act responsibly, live within our means and leave behind not only a habitable planet, but an Earth whose beauty and biodiversity is protected for those who come after us."
