Iceland: Chasing Char & Salmon
In part two of his Icelandic fishing adventure, Rae Borras is taken to the River Jorkla on the east coast of the island. It's a spectacular corner of the planet that is guaranteed to set the pulses of any game angler racing with its salmon, sea trout and Arctic char.
Rae’s targeting the river’s char on the fly first of all in the company of an expert guide, and the pair are soon catching fresh-run fish in the fresh, crystal clear waters.
But Rae has salmon on the brain, and needs ladders, ropes and the bottle of a mountain goat to reach the his next destination, where he's greeted with the incredible sight of dozens of big salmon that are easy to see, but not so easy to catch…
He's up with the larks the following morning determined to break his duck and finally catch an Icelandic salmon on the fly.
He finds himself at a picture postcard a pool that has not been fished in living memory, and finally Rae has his prize salmon in the net… and his mojo back!
