Fishing on Lake Thingvallavatn – Worlds Largest Brown Trout

Fishing on Lake Thingvallavatn – Worlds Largest Brown Trout

The first Frontiers clients of the season have enjoyed a great week on the Nordura River. With one half-day left to go, the team is on 103 fish which have mainly been taken off the lower part of the river. This is even more impressive given the fact that a few members of the team have never fished for salmon before. Overnight 105 fish crossed the middle waterfall opening up the upper sections of the river.

16 lb. Brown Trout in Iceland

16 lb. Brown Trout in Iceland

This week, Barry and Cathy Beck traveled with a group of Frontiers clients to The Highlands region in Iceland. Part moonscape and part middle earth, this area is where brown trout grow large and landing the “fish of a lifetime” is possible. In the photo above, Barry Beck beams proudly after catching a beautiful 16 lb. brown trout at Lake Thingvallavatn.

Iceland Gear Disinfecting Process: A First-Hand Experience

Iceland Gear Disinfecting Process: A First-Hand Experience

Richard Scrope and I headed to Iceland as guests for the opening of the Thvera River and decided that we would not have all of our tackle disinfected before our departure. Our motive was to test the process of having it done at the airport on arrival, something we have not tried for a while. So on landing, after collecting our bags, we presented ourselves at customs and let them know we needed to have tackle disinfected.

A Fishing Phenomenon

A Fishing Phenomenon

 ...the giant but catchable trout of Lake Thingvallavatn.

 

There is an old Icelandic proverb "Fertile is water that runs under lava" that perhaps has its routes in the fertile waters of Lake Thingvallavatn.
