3 Salmon hooked in the same cast , story from Terry Nab fishing the Svarta river. Hi Arni, Just a quick note to bring you up to date on our fishing adventure in Iceland. We finished fishing on Blanda River Beat III yesterday at 1:00 p.m. I caught 2 salmon (one large salmon and 1 grilse) from the lower part of beat III in the second half of our last session there. That gave me a total of 3 salmon from beat 3 and 8 from beat II. We did not catch anything during our first half day on the Svarta River yesterday afternoon. But I caught 2 from the Svarta River, a nice grilse this morning from Kringla pool and then a very nice 80 cm male salmon from Keyrisvad pool at the mid point of the afternoon session today. Both of these salmon were caught on a micro hitch tube. I also raised 2 other salmon to the hitch tube, one of them 4 times, but neither would take the fly. Then neat the end of the day I caught another nice grilse in the junction pool. Interesting story with this last grilse, I hooked a very large salmon that made a very long run downstream and then came unhooked, or so I thought at least. As I was reeling the slack line in, the line came tight again and I was fighting a salmon again, but it did not feel as large as the first fish I had hooked. Well, the line went slack again and this salmon was gone. Then as I was reeling in the slack line again, another salmon took the fly and the fight was on again. So, apparently 3 different salmon hooked on the same cast. The last one I finally landed, but it was only 1/2 the size of the first one I hooked. Have you ever heard anything as crazy as that before? After all of that, it was nearly 10:00 p.m. and time to return to the lodge. Now I have landed a total of 14 salmon so far over the past 6-1/2 days. On Monday afternoon we will be driving back south and will be staying in the Glymer Hotel on Monday night. Then we will be driving to the airport at Keflavik on Tuesday morning to catch our flight to Greenland later in the afternoon. Then on to Greenland for the next few days.
More to come.
