"I would say it was like winning in lottery or bingo, in all perspectives" said Steingrímur Einarsson, designer of the Einarsson fly fishing reels. His men just fished Vatnsdalsa river and made a good trip. They hook, landed and lost numerous salmons all over the river. "We are all delighted after this trip. People coming to the Vatnsdalsa river for the first time and it normally takes some time to get into things here. This is my third time on the river in June and its my salmon here. I have hooked few but never landed a salmon before. Me and my friend Sigurður Orri Steinþórsson landed 7 salmons from 62 cm up to 96 cm. Most of the salmons were around 80 cm but the 96cm one was so thick that he could easily be over 20 pounds" said Einarsson after his trip.
We have now landed 82 salmons (on the 2nd of july) with average weight about 6 kg. Also this year salmons are landed all over the river on all kinds of flies. This will only make this summer more exiting and hopefully we will see more and more salmons run up the river every day.
