This week LAX-Á is fishing the Lower Crathes & West Durris in river Dee. So far it has been a challenging week, hopefully the expected raise in temperature will bring up more fresh fish. The weather is lovely with sun and fairly warm temperature, true spring feeling. The picture is from Monday afternoon, Simon with a 11lb springer.

I will tell everyone everywhere that Stóra Laxá beat 4 is one of the most beautiful fishing spots in the world and you have to see it to believe it. The nature there is out of this world!

Hallá is located in the prolific northwest region of Iceland. This is a clear two-rod river with a self catering lodge – near the town Skagastrond. The river was closed for fishing for some years around the turn of the century, due to tha fact that the salmon stock had all but disappeared. Since re-opening the annual catches have been steadily rising every year. This is 2 rod river is a true paradise for families and friends looking for adventures in beautiful Icelandic nature.

The first month of the season just came to an end at River Dee. The Lower Crathes and West Durris beat produced seven springers this month with four of them caught opening week and the other three the last week of the February. 

This is better than last season when only two salmon where registered in the book but below the twenty salmon five year average of the month of February. 

Our good friend and ghillie at Lower Crathes Robert Harper sent us a picture of a beautiful 22lbs springer caught last friday by Mr. Wiseman. Congratulation on a great fish.

Valgerdur%20Blanda%2017p.jpg

We have just had a cancellation for two rods for 3 days at Blanda beat 1 from the 30th of July this season so we now have them available. The beat 1 has been fully booked for a long time specially given that it is only holding 4 rods and known for its high catch volume and big salmon, being one of Iceland´s most famous rivers. 

Beat 1 is a relatively short beat that holds 4 rods, 2 on each bank. The beat opens in early July and leads the charts throughout June and sometimes July as well in salmons caught per rod. In recent years Blanda has gone from strength to strength, especially beat 1, in 2013 2611 salmon were caught and in 2011 they were 2032 on Blanda river - far most of that were caught on beat number 1. It should be kept in mind that beat 1 is usually only fished for about 60 days. Needless to say beat 1 is the most productive beat of the river.

While fishing or hunting in Greenland, it is very good to take a day of sightseeing and we have many day packages that includes interesting places in South of Greenland.

Have a city walk in the town of Qaqortoq and Narsaq, visit Museums, take a relaxing bath in a hot spring, and see the mighty glacier, Hvalsey church ruins, and the settlement of Igaliko/Gardar. The small settlement of Qassimiut is just 20 minutes from LAX-Á Camp.

Fishing Report (February 21st- February 26th, 2015)
By Alejandro Martello
Week of: February 21- February 26, 2015
Looks like rain is the missing ingredient this summer in Rio Grande. The river remains low and clear but that hasn’t stopped it from delivering the best sea trout fishing on the planet!

Feb 21 – 27, 2015. By James Topham.

 As you know, there’s always something to be learned when flyfishing. So I’m wary when someone calls himself an absolute “expert"—unless that person is veteran KT guide Max Mamaev. He comes pretty close.

Feb 14-19, 2015. By Alejandro Martello
Like the week prior, we started with some rain in the lower stretch of the Rio Grande but there were heavy storms serious storms of rain and snow in the headwaters and in the Andes. How impressive to drive to the river and see the mountains dressed in white in the middle of the summer.

With the weekend right around the corner, what better way to start this Friday with beautiful trout fishing. Here is a 10 minutes pilot from our Norwegian friends, who fished for Trout in Iceland last season and one of the waters are Tungulfljót. Beautiful scenery and many good-sized trout, that’s how we like it in Iceland.

Came across this nice video from Roald Meyer from two years ago. Here you can see two beautiful springers from Lower Crathes beat on River Dee, one 28 lbs and another picture in the end of a 24 lbs. Lower Crathes is known for a few of these good lookers every year. Lets hope that spring 2015 will bring us the good fortune of catching a few of these this coming spring.
