39 fish in three days to two rods in Iceland
Read on for the latest fishing news from Sela and Midfjardara which are both fishing extremely well...
Pete Rippin reports from Sela that 98 salmon have been landed to six rods, and two of these are over 20lbs. 'A great group of fishers including four daughters, all guests of RG. Fantastic guides, chef, food and service - RR won the langoustine challenge!! Wonderful varied river with a good average size of salmon arriving, very few grilse as yet but should arrive in the next days.'
Meanwhile on Midfjardara, a client reports: "Rabbi looked after us immaculately and I truly have not seen a better managed lodge and river. The variety of the fishing was fantastic, the scenery/wildlife were beautiful and we all caught plenty of memorable fish on undisturbed water without anyone else about. The guides were brilliant and the chef was absolutely top notch – I certainly have not eaten better food in a London restaurant let alone a lodge..... it was delicious. The long and short of it is that we would all absolutely love to come back and fish Midfjardara next year on the same dates. We landed 39 fish in three days to two rods."

Arctic char fishing in Greenland has been on my radar for a long time but for various reasons I have never actually taken the plunge. That all changed last year when, on the way to host a group on the East Ranga in Iceland, I spoke to Valgerdur Arnardottir (Arni Baldursson’s daughter) who had just come back from Greenland and was utterly raving about it.
