A slight improvement!

As you may have heard we have suffered this summer with quite unusual drought in many parts of Iceland.  As a result many rivers have suffered with very low water levels and the fishing has been hard. Finally last week we had a little rain in Western Iceland and the catch improved as a result, the Nordura is now up …

River Tungufljot

River Tungufljot has one of the most breathtaking views you will ever find. The waterfall Faxi which is a huge tourist attraction falls in to the river directly above the best pool for fishing. The river has been okay in the past days with average catch per day from 1-5 salmon for the two rods fishing. Pictured is Jonas – …

East Ranga in 2020

The East Ranga has been Iceland’s best river this season by far and yesterday it surpassed 2000 salmon caught. We have one rod left August 28-September 3rd if you want to join the party this year.

Top Ten List – Week 32

And the drought continues!

This season in Iceland has been the strangest i have ever experienced. Iceland is not really known for its sunny climate and our usual summers tend to have more rain than sun. But absolutely not this year! It has hardly rained a drop in south and west Iceland since May and as a result the rivers are suffering badly. Rivers …

Top 10 lis – Week 31

East Ranga dominates the other rivers in Iceland. Heatwave and lack of rain continues to pest most rivers in Iceland this summer. East Ranga is the only river witch is performing up to standard. We really hope the rain will come and knowing Iceland it will eventually so  August and September could be very good for angling. River 31.jul 25.jul …

Top 10 list – week 30

East Ranga is very strong and last week the catch was 497 Salmon….East Ranga is doing better this summer than on the same time last summer. Over all the situation in icelandic rivers is strange. Much to do with the fact that there has almost not been any rain all summer. But knowing Iceland…..the rain will come and hopefully the …
