The reason I have not written anything here in almost a month is that when the fishing season ended I tried to get to grips with the wave of inquiries for the 2016 fishing season in Iceland as well as be involved with the release of a new social media app for anglers called Angling iQ.
Now the app has been released and the work is well underway going through the e-mails. This has been the fourth best salmon fishing year in Iceland and what a season it has been. Huseyjarkvisl River smashed it's old record with 410 salmon landed when the salmon beats closed but I know there have been some salmon landed since then. The sea trout fishing seemed to be a bit slow but that may also be because there were just so many salmon in the river and the weather was a little too nice for sea trout fishing in September.
We did catch some big ones and recently a 91 cm sea trout was landed as well as an 87 cm colored fish (pictured). The Huseyjarkvisl is now sold out in July and August in 2016 but we may have some dates available in September.
Soon I will post all available fishing we will have for the 2016 season and send out a newsletter as well. In the meantime, get Angling iQ on your smartphone and follow me in the app to see some pictures from this season. My username is @stjaniben.
I am still working on setting up packaged trips and I hope to post something soon.
