Smøla is a really good place to go fishing.  The cod, salmon, sea trout and halibut here grow to pretty impressive sizes – which is why the island has such an impressive bird population as well, including about a hundred white tailed eagles.  Even the fresh water fish get pretty big.  Most of the people who live on this flat, scenic island do something to do with fishing, be it guiding other people or doing it themselves.  

The island's largest town is Veidholmen, where most visitors stay.  From here there's some beautiful views of the sprinkling of more than 3,000 smaller islands and islets around Smøla.
