Hosted group Trips
Join us in 2015 were we fish a lake known for its monster sized trout with the local expert and guide Þorsteinn Stefánsson. We will be targeting very large browns with an average size of 6lb with a chance of catching one of those monster trout that swims in the lake. We will also fish two spring creeks, known for their large trout. The group will be a total of 8 people, thats including me and Þorsteinn and we will split the group up between me and Þorsteinn when we fish, so it will only be a total of 4 anglers on the same beat at any given time. The rivers we will fish are only available for our group on the dates that we are there fishing.
Group trip in May:
During the month of May in Iceland, We will have a good chance to catch that trophy trout we all been dreaming about. We will mostly be targeting lake Thingvellir, a lake that holds Iceland´s biggest brown trout. The trout in this lake are very special, they are landlocked sea-trout, locked in the lake since the last ice age. These trout grow very big and 15kg browns are caught here every year and even more are hooked but lost. If the weather behaves we will have a good chance of finding big fish rising to the surface. This is the best spot in Iceland to try to catch that trophy size fish we all dream about. This trip will be all about catching large fish and that in may we have our best chance to do just this. We are also specifically targeting the lake that will give us the best chance to catch one of these monsters and with the help of our Thingvellir expert Þorsteinn we will maximize our chances.
We are also targeting two rivers that are known for its fun sight-fishing for big browns. Fish will be feeding on tiny midge and if weather behaves we have good chance of finding 3-5kg fish rising to the surface.
