    Avoid going through Schiphol at all costs.
    We lost our gear on transfer to Trondheim & I knew a few others in the same boat.

    Only fished the Gaula so can’t help with further north.

    For the past couple of years I have stuck with SAS, if you book early enough its same day travel both ways via Oslo. From Kirkennes to Lakselv would be covered by internal flights, possibly Widero who are SAS partners? Although, given arrival time at Kirkennes of around 8.00p.m. it would likely be next day earliest meaning a stay in the Scandic or Thon for £100 or so.
    Having a car may be the best option but unless there is a group would cost an individual fortune.

    I always fly to Lakselv. Transit, Oslo, Tromso, then Lakselv. Or Alta. think Norweagan Air do some cheaper flights to Alta.
    As has been said hiring a car in Norway, is expencive. I always hire from a friend, normally a van, and sling a mattress in the back.

    It all depends on where you are going to fish in Finnmark. From the south of Norway, the most important airports are, from West to East: Tromsø, Alta, Lakselv and Kirkenes.
    Remember that distances can be huge, between the main cities and the interesting rivers. To fly within Finnmark, as Keirstream mentions, look at Widerøe here is their English website
    Book flight tickets | Wideroe
    For car rental, have a look at «Rent a wreck». Cheaper than most, they have rent outlets in quite a few tourist locations in Finnmark.

    Yes, the mileage!
    You have approximately 500 kms of driving, between six and seven hours on these roads! Much better to use Kirkenes airport! You can fly from Kirkenes to Vadsø, if you so wish, which brings you closer to your fishing destination, Vestre Jakobselv being about 15 kms from Vadsø. The road distance is about 150 km, Kirkenes-Stabburelva is about the same.
    Be sure to secure your fishing licence prior to your trip to the Vestre Jakobselv. On the spot day tickets are sold through a lottery system and there are not many of them!

    Jakobselva has some limits on the licence for non residents of finnmark, you need to stop with a designated accommodation provider, the catch is there is only one campsite that has permits for non residents and that Is a daily lottery draw of people staying at the site so depends on how many people want tickets that day.

    The other option is need to stop in one of the camps who have cabins but they are expensive especially for one person due to the quality of that river the owners know the worth that can be 200 to 300 euros a night but of course sleep more then 1 person so its best to go with a small group .

    If you go there you can also fish the komag, neiden etc and fantastic sea trout dishing

    On Stabburselva there is also lottery for some zones. And the licence can be bought in Stabbursnes Museum only. So it is good to have a plan B.
