By the way, awesome flies. I do well with #10-12 up there (not as well as with the garden browns, but that is a different story!) <_<

Hi Mikey

 

Thanks for the info about Iceland.

A friend told me some time ago and I have already made my move and are now waitng for the final deal to come through. :yahoo:

So there will (hopefully) be a lot more tying of small salmon flies for the Atlantic salmon visiting the rivers of the Volcano island.

What was your favorite fly when you fished for salmon up there?

 

Regards

Jens

My Grandfather does really well with a Collie Dog, size 10, Thunder and Lightning #12-10, Green Highland #12-10, Munro Killer #12-10, Red Francis #12-10, White Wing, and others. I caught my last one on a fly called the Krafla that I bought up there. It is like a Red Francis, sort of. It was #12, orange color. It almost looks like a very small toilet bowl scrubber!

Hi all

 

I can see on this topic that the discussion is Iceland. Yes it is very exspensive to fish for salmon here in Iceland. Where in world can you hook as many Atlantic salmon without leaving civilliation as here in Iceland. I am a professional guide in Iceland and have been for many years. Last summer I was guiding in a small beat in the river I have been guiding mostly. I was there for three days and guiding two rods. We landed 65 grils and just imagine how many we lost, and we did not even use our time quiet well. This beat is self-catering and it cost my costumers around 1000 US dollars pr. day for fishing. They will be back next summer. :rolleyes:

What I use in hook are size # 12 and # 14. The flies I use are following: Haugur, Von, Hrútur,Klaki, Black Sheep, Silver Sheep Collie Dog, Green Braham Icelandic version, Munro's Killer, Black and Blue, Sun Ray Shadow and rifling hitch tubes

Hi Mikey

Thanks for your reply and your fly advice.

 

Haugur

 

Also thanks to you for your fly advice. Which hooks do you use treble doubles or singel hooks.

I also need to ask you about the fly that have your name how is it dressed?

Another question to you as a guide. The disinfection of fishing gear in the airport do you know the price how much they charge?

 

regards

Jens
