Char on River Hòlaà (Iceland) fly fishing
">

With the sunny day, we have no difficulties seeing through the crystal-clear water that the river is full of char. They are feeding in the water column. Their mouths pop open each time they engulf a nymph. They are actively feeding, but only underwater. There is a huge drift of some sort of larvae or pupae. We try several patterns, but they are feeding on microscopic midge pupae. Too tiny for the imitations in our boxes. Mind to bring along some 22-size hook imitation if you happen to come here. Moreover, it is the weekend and the river is full of anglers that keep walking up and down and fish are extremely alerted and suspicious.
