I just heard from Head Ghillie at Lower Crathes Robert Harper and interrupted him in his preparations for opening day on Monday. I could hear that he was looking forward to the start of the season and he is not the only one.
According to Robert the river looks nice at the moment at Lower Crathes and the Dee and the water levels are good. However the forecast could be better with snow and wintery conditions offer the weekend.
But we cannot do anything about the weather and what matters in the end of the day is that a nice spring fish will be waiting our anglers on Monday. Robert & us at Lax-á are staying positive.
We want to let our friends and anglers know that after the weekend, or from 3rd to 8th of February, LAX-Á will take part in one of the largest fishing and hunting exhibitions in Europe, Jagd & Hund and Fisch & Angel. The location of the show is Messe Wesftallenhallen in Dortmund.
LAX-Á delegate at the show will be Valgerður Erla, Simon & Jóhann Torfi and you will find them at two different booths at the show; at Jagd & Hund hall 7 stand 7.F47 & Fisch & Angel hall 3 stand 3A.B22.
Fishing is all about the feeling, meeting new people, sharing experiences and the passion for the wildlife. At least for me, that’s why I fish. Greenland is my favoutire place on earth and there’s one day that I would like to share with you. This is a story from the season of 2013 in Lax-Á Camp Greenland and a day just before the season started. Enjoy!
River Dee opening week is just around the corner and we at LAX-Á cant wait. On that note we like to let you know that we have to offer fishing at Forest Birse on the famous River Dee in Scotland on weeks, 15, 18 and 19.
The beat has five-year average of 278 Salmon grilse and 84 Sea trout and has been one of the most popular beats on the river.
"Best fishing day so far was yesterday in West Ranga where 125 salmon where caught on 14 rods. The salmon is larger then usual this year according to our camp manager, he told us the one year salmon is bigger then previous years but also a lot more of 2 year old salmon."
If you are looking for an exellant salmon beat near Reykjavik, situated in the perfect enviroment - Sog Asgardur is your place. This is a beautiful river situated only 45 minutes from the capital. The lodge is perfectly situated at the river bank with view from the jacuzzi over the river and mountains nearby. This beat is well known for large salmon and is ideal for fly fishing, a great choice would be floating lines and riffling hitch which works very well. This 5.6km beat is exclusive for 3 salmon rods.
