We caught a lot of fish!
Our small group of fishermen caught approximately 22 fishes per person each day. The main fishing area was in "Fjallabak" just north east from mount Hekla. The average catch in the whole area 2005 is about 7 fishes per person and day. Most of the fishes in the picture were caught by fly. Due to heavy wind part of this day some were however taken using spinner as bait.


View over the lake Lödmundarvatn where most of the fishes were caught in 2005.

  


The char to the left was the next biggest caught this day. It weighed around five pounds and was taken on a small black and red "pup". To the right you can se the same fish on the grill just before the evening meal the same day.

The water at this location was rather muddy and you had to experiment and change between different kinds of bait.

Evening meal at the "highlandcottage" in Versalir after a nice fishing day. We spent an enjoyable evening at Versalir mingling with some lokal farmers who were on an 8 day riding tour in the Sprengisandur area.


Some of the people in the riding group taught us and some others linedance later in the evening.
