Iceland 2017


After a long trip North on the Friday there would be no fishing on arrival just a few hours relaxing and chilling out. On the Saturday it was an early start, fishing started at an incredible pace with coalies, cod and treble shots of dabs in excess if 1.5lb.

It remained the same throughout the day  and it was estimated that we caught in the region of 400 plus fish between us. Heaviest fish of the day was a cod of 4.25lb by Dave Tapper.


Day 2

Again the fishing remained fast and furious with again cod coalfish and dabs the main species. A few double figure fish lost at the net Heaviest fish of the day went to Mal Hurley taking the pool with a cod of 6lb 9oz. Some excellent fish of 7lb plus caught on the float or free lined bluey, Fantastic fishing!


Day 3

Venturing over to Dalvik Pier with the group splitting up venturing over the rocks on a breakwater. It was a cod every cast and the pier had some fine coalies and scores and score of treble and double shots of huge dabs.

Best fish of the day went to Danno with a cod of 8lb 5oz.


Day 4

Again we returned to Dalvik as the fishing was so productive the previous day. This time a few more walked over the Breakwater, every time you looked up one of the lads was into cod, It really was magical fishing.

The Pier once again fished unbelievable with some anglers hitting 100 fish plus in a session, A truely remarkable session. Heaviest of the day with a nice cod of 8lb 15oz was Club Chairman Peter Evans.


Day 5

This being our last day we moved twice and ended up on the Pier by the town docks. Again the venue did not disappoint with hundreds of fish caught. A few lads opted to fish float and free lining tactics over a rubby dubby which was something else. Best fish of the day a cod of 7lb 4oz on a float.


The trip we all agreed was the best Iceland trip we have encountered, fishing was unreal! Some who had not been before found it just mind blowing. The fishing really was special, all those who went I'm sure would like to join in and thank Steve and his companion Joe who went that bit further to make it a very memorable trip we will never forget.
