Salmonfishing on Iceland

Post by Jacob : salmonfisher03 »

Just got back from 3 wonderful fishing days.
I was fishing the river Thvera on Iceland.
Only problem was that it had not been raining for a very long time, so the river was very low.

But enjoy some photos from the wonderful island Iceland :D

The Thvera river - I think I was very close to heaven, this river is a dream :bow:

Sunshine, Bogdan reel and cold beer :beer :lol:

My angling friend, our guide (the best) and me.

The guide is netting the salmon for me.

80 cm pure silver - a fresh salmon, just a few days in the river 8)

And back to the river again.

Next salmon on the fly - the guide is again ready to do his job :wink:

And another fresh salmon, this one still with sealice.

Collecting fly reels from Otto Zwarg, Edward Vom Hofe and Bogdan.
