News from Strengir

Dear friends and clients

The season has started and got off to a fine start. Our salmon rivers were opened for fishing at the turn of the month but one specific thing has overshadowed all else. Last weekend our friend Orri Vigfússon chairman of the NASF passed away following a difficult fight against cancer. Orri's work at saving wild salmon stocks date's back for years and years and he, along with his network of NASF directors and other friends and believers, has had such a huge amount of success that it is hard to believe. Yet there is a tremendous amount of work still to be done and we all hope that the heirs to the NASF will keep up the good work. Orri was a personal friend and our company Strengir, will do all it can to help as I suspect that most if not all other outfitters and fly fishermen in Iceland will also do. When such a huge character leaves the stage it often takes several others to fill the void left behind. RIP good friend Orri and we also offer our sincere condolences to his family.

So. Jökla, Hrúta and Breiðdalsá all started on the 1rst of July. All had successful starts to the season, eight landed on the first three shifts on Jökla, plus one caught by a trout fisherman on the last day of June far up the valley. Allt but one were mws's, big and silvery torpedoes. (Photo here at the top is big one taken on hitch in Jökla river this week.) Breiðdalsá had four on the first morning, all mws's, and Hrúta had four as well after a mere two hours. There were further catches on all three rivers over the following days and salmon spotted on most beats on all rivers. The start is a success and grilse arriving early give hope that their runs will be strong in 2017.

You may take note that Hrúta is fully booked but there are some very good looking openings on both Breiðdalsá and Jökla, plus on both we can combine salmon fishing with some outstanding brown trout and sea char fishing. Feel free to ask for further information on the matter.

Hope to hear from you soon, tight lines to all.

Iceland season start better than expected!

Hello clients and friends!

Things are looking good up here in the frozen north. The salmon fishing season started with a fluster, as it got off to a rather far better start than anyone had dared to hope for. Following a less than average grilse season last year, few were expecting the mws's in numbers. Yet they are running in force and have arrived early as well. Of course we hope that the good news will continue and be followed by the expected big grilse runs.

The spring fishing was mixed. April was rather cold which affected our beautiful brown trout stream Minnivallalækur. May then turned out to be the warmest in Iceland so far this century, and even looking far back. The fishing picked up and has been excellent since. Also on the trout scene, sea char are arriving in numbers into the estuaries of Fögruhlíðará and Breiðdalsá. Our clients have been getting really lucky, and those venturing inland to fish the upper reaches of Breiðdalsá have been rewarded with brilliant catches of brown trout.


Nice fresh sea-run arctic char from Fögruhlíðarós estuary in Jökla fishery.

Brown trout fishing in Breiðdalsa has been great since begyning June when first anglers arrived as Jean Baptiste Morel from France experienced here:"We just left last night Breiddalsa river with head full of wonderful memories!We ve had a fantastic time there despite this horrible wind but with no less than 50/60 brownies caught in 48h hours. No monsters but several fat ones over 45cm...Suddy took care of us like a father! The lodge looks wonderful and a Top 5* level! "

Our salmon fisheries are generally late starters and do not open until the end of June. If our rivers will be in accordance with other Icelandic rivers they will have filled up of salmon long before that!

We still have availabilities and would like to strongly recommend the opening days on Jökla, 1-5th July and we also have a few rods there at 11-15 and 15-18th July. Absolute prime time. On the Breiðdalsá we can still squeeze in rods from 3-10th August and have other openings here and there. On the Minnivallalækur we have notable openings 9-12th July and 24-28th July, prime time for the dry fly fishing. Also, we would like to point out to you that late season trips to Minni have proved to be extremely productive for a number of clients.

Hope to hear from you soon, tight lines to all.
