Four kilo Icelandic brown trout beauty

Kinetic test team member David Thormar is right now spending his holiday on Iceland. To him there’s no better way to relax than to fish as hard and as much as possible.

As previous years the trout fishing has been spectacular and so far it peaked Saturday June 23th. as he caught a beautiful Icelandic brown trout weighing approximately four kilos (almost nine pounds).

David was using a #6 RIO Dart flyline – a line made exclusively for Scandinavia by RIO Products – and a Hardy Zenith #6 rod. The line is a perfect choice for both over- and underhand casting from impossible positions and the Hardy rod is not only one of the best rods in terms of casting performance and delicate fly presentation, it also has an almost unbelievable strength when it comes to fighting big fish.

All of this was needed as David was fishing in the small river Litlaá. This river offers anything from narrow, fast flowing parts to wider and more slow flowing sections.

Due to the volcanic underground the water temperature is high even at winter time and the trout’s grow fast. Furthermore the river houses both sea running brown trout (seatrout) and regular brown trout. We can’t tell for sure if David’s four kilo fish was a regular brown trout. But what we do know is, that it’s harder to imagine a more beautiful trout.

It took a home tied Black Ghost and was one of several fish caught that day.
