I’m back, after a three month session guiding in the West Rangá river in Iceland, or what could be called “SALMON HEAVEN”. This river is one of, if not the most productive Atlantic Salmon fisheries in the world, where there are between 5-15.000 salmon caught every season. This year was another great year, with lots of long days, many fish, beautiful scenery, and great company.
I also stopped by for a week in Denmark, where I caught my first pike, which I still definitely count as added to the species list despite the lack of size!
Now, however, I’m snapping back into reality, adjusting to the hot temperatures of the California Central Coast again, and getting ready to slay some warm and saltwater species. My goal for this year is to crack the leopard shark flats around this area, and get some sharks on the fly consistently.
As usual I’ll also be chasing bass, carp, rockfish, and some more species and experimenting with some fly tying techniques that I’ll be sharing on here.
Expect to see a lot more action on here in the coming weeks and months! This should be an exciting new year in California!
Here’s some fish porn from Iceland!
