Tungufljot

Tungufljot was, like many other rivers, very strange this summer. Every time it seemed as if the fishing was picking up, we know of at least 1 rod that caught 13 salmon in one afternoon, it slowed down again very shortly. We don’t know why this was, this river has been very good since 2008, but we do know that …

One of the best Trout rivers in Iceland

Is our very own Litlaa (literally translated: Little river) in the north-eastern part of Iceland. As the name indicates, it’s not a big river – but it’s not a creek either, it holds 5 rods comfortably and anglers can choose between full board and self catering accommodation. The river offers all species of Icelandic freshwater sport fish; brown trout, sea …

Langadalsa – a gem of a river

West Ranga in late July

Late July (from July 20th and onwards) is a very good time in West Ranga; we’ve seen daily catches go up to and above 100 salmon. But on an average day in an average year (if there is such a thing), daily catches are between 60 and 80 salmon, 3 – 4 salmon per rod. Late July is the height …

Halla – Beautiful river in Northwest Iceland

Hallá is a small and sensitive 2 rod river in Northwest of Iceland. The Hallá River is 10km long and fast flowing and rocky in the lower part, but the upper reaches are mostly slow flowing with cut-bank pools, ideal for fly- fishing with light tackle. It is the perfect places were the angler can be totally alone. Average catch …

In the search for the biggest brown trout on the planet

Memories of last summer

As we stow away our rods, reels, waders and jackets (and the seemingly endless accessories) for the winter, we usually reminisce about the salmons we caught and lost this summer past. For me it‘s the huge salmon I hooked in Blanda in mid-August – that one has revisited me several times since then. I only saw its tail, the size …

Final report Stora Laxa

According to our books, the final tally from Stora Laxa was 795 salmon – the highest number of salmon ever. Some salmon weren’t logged in the final days because the log book was full! But we have now gathered information on these remaining salmon and it seems we have a new record! The summer was a little peculiar in Stora, …
