Great start to the salmon fishing

Written by Stjani. Posted in News.

Thvera 2015Last year we took a group to the Thvera River for some early season salmon fishing for 4 days from June 16. - 20. We got some difficult days and the season turned out to be below average. This year we made the same trip to the same river and what a different trip it was making us really optimistic for the upcoming season. 

This year we had a group of 10 German and Swiss anglers sharing 8 rods in total. We fished the Thvera River and the Brenna beat which is the lowest part of the Thvera. In 4 days the group landed 43 salmon, compared to 17 last year. Of the 43 salmon landed there were 32 MSW's and 11 grilse. We caught fish in all the beats and had many on the hitch. We also lost about 50 salmon as the takes were fierce and violent as per usual with fresh run salmon. 

Overall we had a great time, had some wonderful food and enjoyed life at the wonderful Thvera River. We will report on some more salmon fishing in the coming days but overall the start seems to be just great. 

Tight lines,

Fishing in Iceland - May Report

Written by Stjani. Posted in News.

Nice big sea trout from HuseyjarkvislFishing in Iceland has had it's ups and downs for the past month. Mostly due to the coldest spring since 1977. Still we've maneged some very good fishing and the photos speak for themselves. Before I go on I would like to apologise for the lack up news on the site. Due to my incredibly busy schedule I've not been able to update the site just yet. 

May started with a trip to the Huseyjarkvisl River where we had an absolute blast! Two guys fishing landed plenty of sea trout although we spent very little time on the water everyday. I don't quite remember the total but I do remember we had 10 fish over 70 cm with the biggest at 86 cm. 

Massive 19 pound trout from Lake ThingvellirFrom the Huseyjarkvisl we moved to the Lake Thingvellir and it's been good for the most part. We've had days where everything was on fire and we've had days where everything looked dead. We did 5 days with Paul Procter, journalist from the UK as well as a few day trips. For the most part we had a great time and some serious brown trout were caught including a 19 pound fish. 

Now the salmon season has started and it starts well. For Nordura River 12 fish were landed in the first days and that can be considered quite good. We look forward to the season and I hope to have time to write some more reports in the coming days. For those of you interested in shorter reports please follow us on Twitter @icelandangling and on Facebook. We also have an Instagram account where we try and post some pictures from time to time. 

Tight lines,
