Lake Thingvallavatn in the National Park of Iceland have Brown Trout of size that it is hard to believe ... every year there are numbers of Brown Trout of sizes as big as 10 - 28 pounds landed , they call them the Ice Age Brownies .. and they are caught from bank and on fly !  These Brownies must be some of the biggest in the world , best time to come is when the ice is just off the lake and the Brownies are hungry and hunting , timing is April , may and early june ... it is very exciting and unforgetable memories seeing huge groups of Brownies of this size passing by when you are fishing ,  splashes like fresh salmon , you hook ten of them and if you are lucky you will land one!  Arni arnibald@lax-a,is

What’s Greenland like? I’ve been asked that questions many times and I still haven’t got a good answer for it. Greenland is so much bigger, more beautiful and spectacular than words can describe. You have to be here and experience it. I’ve had so many amazing moments in Greenland and there’s nothing like it.

The Stora Laxa river is one of the most beautiful rivers in Iceland, for myself I will never get enough of it, there are new fishing places around every corner more beautiful then the other. The Asgardur is situated nearby which makes it great as a combination but that is a very different river so it is good to experience both. It would be perfect to spend f.ex. 3 days at Stora Laxa and 2 days at Sog Asgardur and Sydri Bru.
