News from Kjos, Iceland

Jack Selby is guiding in Laxa i Kjos, Iceland. He reports from the river bank... 

We have had a slow start to the three days with scorching weather and a run of fish that was lower than expected. There were a lot of big fish in the pools but the grilse had not shown up in great numbers. Yesterday this all changed and we caught twelve salmon plus some really cracking sea trout including a 14lber and a 12lber. The weather changed further this morning with some light rain and a cool breeze meaning that the fishing picked up a good deal.

The team of eight rods left with 28 fish to their names but very importantly we had a first fish for Liz N. There were quite a few fish lost and plenty of action between fish. This morning there seem to be more of the fresh grilse about and many fish running up through beat 1. A grilse with long tailed lice was also caught on upper mirror this morning. Hopefully the grilse numbers will build as the big tide builds towards the 21st July.

We will keep you updated with news from the river. For more information please do not hesitate to contact us.
