Iceland, a tricky season in 2012 but demand for the best remains high

by Charlie White

2012 will not go down as one of Iceland’s best seasons. Low water at the beginning of the year appeared to be to blame but, even when the rains came, the number of salmon that we have become used to simply did not materialise. There were exceptions to the rule and whilst numbers were down across the board, some rivers still produced very respectable returns.

The East and West Ranga were two of these and their catch statistics, superb guides, comfortable lodges and the fact that they are close enough to Reykjavik to allow for a three day trip means that they remain in high demand. If you seek high volume salmon fishing but are unable to spare a whole week from work or family commitments then do take a closer look at these rivers. Please contact Louise Mackenny or Charlie White for further details.
