East and West Rangá by Manuel Ploesser

Fishing EAST and WEST RANGA2015  …Tough fishing? NO! Not this year… When I arrived last week in Iceland at the airport I heard a lot of comments like this year is tough fishing, the fishing is late, the salmon have not entered and so on…On my way to the lodge my thoughts were already running through the water. In which pool and beat would I be able to start my trip? Would there be salmon? I´m not the one who thinks in numbers or huge fish.  Each salmon is a big present and you have to work hard for it.

The guides at the lodge know me and they already joke, that fishing with me is hardcore fishing…

 

After ten casts at the river the water was boiling – a wonderful 16 IBS fish was playing with me. Then the wind stopped I was able to take a look in the water – the WEST RANGA was packed with fished. I´ve never seen this river like that, although I know it very well for many years…..it was filled up with salmon. At the lowest beat my fishing partner and me had about 30 fish together – in 6 hours!!!

Unbelievable fishing and like fishing in heaven…

The EAST RANGA also fished very well and I had some nice chromers for the box – up to 88 cm and very heavy fish that gave me an tremendous fight! The Guides like Skuli and his son Arni are great and I would say they are outstanding!!! It is a pleasure to fish there and i´m already planning my next trip for 2016. If you are interested or would like to join me on a guided tour i´m ready! Before the trip I will help you with tackle advance and also the search of the perfect fly. Some fisherman say that casting is the most important thing – I don´t think so. You have to search and find the fish – also the presentation of the right fly is important. Don´t worry – even I had about more than 80 fish on, there are same left for 2016. Get ready and contact me early – we started the 2016 bookings already! Please contact me manuel@lax-a.de

The rivers will be on fire in 2016 too!  Lets get ready to rumble…
