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

You experience some of the best and memorable moments on the river, it really makes the words "invest in your soul" very true. That is what I feel like I am doing, I remember my fishing moments from childhood and today I enjoy taking my daughter fishing. With that in mind I found this very funny fishing video online made by the BBC in the 1990s. Although this father in the video is nothing like fishing with my own father, there are definitely some very good moments in the video that ring true for other fisherman moments.

Every now and again we at the office get the opportunity to go out and do some fishing. That just happened a few weeks ago where the Swedish guy, also known as Simon Nilsson, and me went to Lake Þingvellir to hunt down some brown trout. This fishing is something that both Icelandic and foreign anglers have been giving more attention to in recent years and is a great addition to the spring fishing in Iceland. Especially for the restless angler who finds it to hard to wait for the salmon fishing to start.

Just wanted to remind you all on beat 2 in Blanda which we have split up from beat 1 as we are now offering them separately; 4 rods on beat 1 and 6 rods on beat 2. The second beat, up in the valley, is 25 km long with endless pools and plenty of space.

It will be very exciting to see how beat 2 will proceed alone but by making this change we are pretty sure that we will have a better use of the beat and the catch numbers will improve. valgerdur@lax-a.is

The Stora Laxa river is by far the most beautiful river in Iceland in my opinion. There is nothing like walking in the canyons looking for the salmon and casting in the breathtaking scenery. What I think is also so charming is that the river is situated only about 45 minutes from our capital so it is such a short distance to go to be in such scenery. valgerdur@lax-a.is
