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

To us fishermen size matters. We are always after that large one - the trophy fish of our dreams.

In Iceland a few of those monsters are caught every year, sadly they are less common now than in the good old days. But there is hope, with catch and release more widely practiced the large ones are returning.

There were 31 fish reported to FishDee for week ending 28 March. This was a disappointing return for our anglers and ghillies. We had big tides the previous weekend and I had hoped this would have brought some fish upriver. Conditions were good for the most part, with the river dropping back towards the end of the week. Thankfully we had a top up yesterday, so hopefully that will help put a few more in the book this week.
