Spotlight: Brunna River

Written by Stjani. Posted in News.

fishing brunna 1Imagine a sunny day and you are walking besides a beautiful, crystal clear stream with a fly rod in hand. Now imagine coming up to a nice pool surrounded with birch shrubs on one side and weird lava formations on the other side. The water is so clear you can see every little pebble on the bottom and some funny white stripes that seem to be moving around. When you take a closer look you can see that those white stripes belong to the fins of all the Arctic char swimming around in the pool. You rig up with a couple of small nymphs on a long leader and make your cast. You can easily see when one of the char in the pool turns its head to the right to pick up one of your nymphs. You raise the tip of your rod and you're into a nice fish. 

That description matches the fishing on the Brunna River on a sunny day. The landscape this river flows through is magnificent to say the least. The clearness (not sure if that's even a word) of the water and the power of the char. All factors that have to be seen and experienced to believe. The top part of the river is small with small pools often stacked with char while the lower part is slower, wider and deeper and the char can be hiding anywhere.

The Brunna offers the perfect setting for those who like to walk besides a beautiful river with fly rod in hand chasing wild strong fish. The cozy little log cabin included with this river is located in a birch grove and offers two double bedrooms and a sleeping loft where two can sleep. Bathroom, shower and a fully equipped kitchen are all in the cabin and we offer the choice between self catering or full board. 

Prime time on Brunna River is from mid July to mid August but that is the time when usually the biggest runs are. Personally I like to be there a little early when there are fewer but bigger fresh fish in the system. But that is just my personal preference. The Brunna has both a strong run of sea run Arctic char and a good stock of brown trout. The occassional salmon has been caught and in 2013 two of our clients caught a salmon on Brunna

To sum things up, if you like nymph and dry fly fishing for strong wild fish in a beautiful river with breathtaking scenery (who doesn't?) then the Brunna is the right place for you. Currently we have spots available on Brunna in late June and mid August. More information on available packaged trips including the Brunna River can be seen HERE!

Trophy Trout Hunting in Iceland

Written by Stjani. Posted in News.

fishing iceland trophy troutWe are extremely pleased to announce the addition of a new fishing area for us, the now world famous, Lake Thingvellir. The lake is famous for enormous brown trout and four varieties of Arctic char in amazing natural setting and landscape. The lake is very big and to be successful you have to know what you are doing and where you should go. So up until now we've not had guides that know the lake well enough for us to offer trips there. This has changed and now we are proud to announce that we have started a co-operation with one of the most successful trophy trout hunters in Iceland who will be your guide while fishing on Lake Thingvellir

This guy really knows his stuff and has countless brown trout over 10 pounds landed from the lake and several over 20 pounds. Yup - that is right, several over 20 pounds. A common trout to catch in the lake is from 6 - 10 pounds and the chances of catching a double figure fish are quite high with the chance of catching brown trout over 20 pounds, all natural, all wild, all Ice Age Brown trout. 

The prime time for this fishery is short and due to the fact that we will only be running trips with this one guide we urge you to make sure to book your spot on the Lake Thingvellir sooner than later. We offer day trips and multi day expeditions to the lake as well as offering trout combo trips with the lake included. We can tailor make any kind of trip you want so please direct any questions you may have to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Tight lines,
