Brynjudalsá is a small salmon river only 45 minutes away from the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. It is a great option for daytrips from the capital or couple of days of fishing. We can offer different kinds of accommodation for anglers in the area, from a summer lodge to a fully serviced hotel. The catch statistics are wonderful for this small river as its produces an average of 240 salmon last 5 years with last year finishing in 303 salmon.

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

Beat 4 is a tributary of the main river Blanda. This is said to be one of the best kept secret rivers in Iceland, many fish around and they are so willing to take small flies and the hitch. I highly reccomend this fishing, the lodge is self catering and the price is fair. The river is small, ideal for single handed rods weight 5 - 7 and all floating line. The beat 4 is crystal clear and offers over 40 pools and pockets to fish from for the 3 rods.

There were 73 fish and 39 sea trout reported to FishDee for the week ending 23 May. This is a bit of an improvement on previous weeks, although I will keep the Lambrini on ice until we top three figures.

The lower river had another slow week with just 11 below Banchory Bridge. Crathes, Invery/Tilquhillie and Banchory had three apiece with Park and Lower Crathes taking just one each.

Langadalsa is one of our most popular rivers, located in the beautiful West Fjords. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful which makes this the perfect place for relaxing in good company, catching fish. The average size of fish is around 9 lbs but each season we see fish up to 20 lbs.

Another week and another fishing report from our favorite Scottish river, the River Dee. Our beat, The Lower Crathes and West Durris reported a total of three salmon and one sea trout last week. Below you will find the river report from Ross Macdonald.

"There were 51 fish reported to FishDee for the week to 9 May. No change on last week's total and still well below what we deem to be reasonable. There were reports of a several solid looking sea trout to 4lbs- there were 33 of these wonderful fish in the book. We had a good rise in water levels last week, peaking on Wednesday and another rise was underway this morning, so hopefully this sustained water will make a difference over the coming week.
