Charles Jardine

Renowned UK fly anglers Charles Jardine and his son Alex star in this week's show and they are on the hunt for Arctic Char on the River Skardsa in the incredible Black Desert of the Highlands of Iceland.  They've barely got out of the car when Charles hooks into a fine Char and he's delighted as its his first ever. Alex also strikes early using heavy nymphs, and lands a lovely 68cm fish. Char of 10lb are not uncommon in this river and there's certainly some father son rivalry going on as they attempt to out do each other. Back at the lodge, Alex talks to Eggert whilst tying up some new flies and discusses the fact that the UK nymph patterns for Grayling work very well for Char too, as both species like to lie low in the water.  Back on the river the following day, the Jardines try a new pool and Charles lands another chunky 60cm fish and discusses his position on catch and release and catch and kill. Charles is mesmerised by the rugged landscape here and takes some time out from the fishing to indulge another of his passions, drawing, and creating a wonderful pencil drawing of Alex fishing the pool. In a final hurrah, Charles Jardine returns to the pool where he started and stalks another fine Arctic Char in clear water. To watch just login or join
