Well I am back in Sweden after a week of trout hunting in Iceland. The weather turned out to be just as the forecast had foretold. We had a day with insane wind speeds 30 ms (meter per second) and the temperature was almost always around zero celsius. The locals told us that we had some very unlucky weather, it usually is not this cold during late april and fishing is usually good. The water temperature was never above +4 C during our entire week and that means slow fishing. We met a few anglers and there seems to have been some very good fishing just days before this cold front hit. 90cm trout had been caught and many in the 80cm range. After the cold weather hit, most people fishing the lake had very slow fishing. All in all, our trip was a success, we only had 2 days when we didn’t catch any fish and I also managed to catch a very large one. The last 2 days of the trip was warm and we had around +6-9 C and hardly no wind, this made fish a lot more active and we could see a lot of rising trout and some where very large. I estimated a few to be around 8-10kg, when the head of a large fish like that breaks the surface all those slow hours in the cold are forgotten and your body just feels warm and full of energy again. Its jaw dropping stuff and it´s very addictive fishing.

This weekend I am heading down south of Sweden to fish for sea-trout. The weather aint looking all that promising but I aint giving up that easy. The forecast is windy and cold with a promising sunday filled with higher winds and even a chance of light snowfall…This doesn’t necessarily mean that the fishing wont be any good, it can be great! Besides, it´s better than staying home, cause there you will most definitely not catch a fish so I am packing my bags and heading down south.
Hope you guys will have a great weekend.
Fantastic Mr Trout.
