For some time now I have heard whispers of the trout fishing in Iceland and I was dubious at best. The idea of rivers with browns averaging 4-5lbs and the chance of 10-12lb fish like in New Zealand but then with the population density resembling a river more like that of Southern England, it just seemed inconceivable! So I ventured North-West to go and see if any of these bold statements were based at all on truth.
This week Alphonse Island was covered by a depression bringing overcast conditions, strong winds and heavy rain – but there were still some very special fish caught!
The last week of the season finally arrived bringing with it light south-easterly trade winds – and magnificent fishing!
