Iceland - Thvera/Kjarra opens with a modern record...

We knew the Icelandic salmon season was starting well due to the results from neighbouring river Nordura but ThveraKjarra broke modern records (since worming or spinners were used for the opening days in the 1960's) with 73 fish up to 16lbs for the opening day. The fish clearly continue to arrive with the bottom beats showing fish moving all the time.

There was also a big celebration at the Thvera Lodge where Richard Scrope and Tarquin Millington-Drake were guests for the opening day. The sitting room and dining room has been hugely upgraded and extended and are now modern and beautiful. A big congratulations to everyone involved. 2017 will see all the bedrooms being upgraded as well. On the first night we also had a visit from the guys who take guests up into the interior top of Kjarra on ponies, Hilmir and Joey. They are shown here with Ingo Asgeirsson's, the river operator, wife Disa. The wonderful food was by Thrainn Vigfusson who is the best chef in Iceland! Thrainn will be cooking throughout the guest season at Thvera.

The Nordura experienced a record opening on June 8 with over 70 salmon caught in the first two and a half days with lots of fish in the high teens. The fishing continues to remain very strong and is expected to produce an exceptional season. What a great opportunity to book fishing when you almost know it will be good!
