~Into a trout under the midnight sun~

Fishing 24/7:

July brings 24 hours of daylight in Iceland. Obviously this throws the evening rise period into turmoil. With that, it's easy to burn the candle at both ends and pretty much fish through the night. Toby Coe and Judy Bourton managed to last until 3am one morning and were rewarded with rising trout. Lee Watts and myself retired for a nap around 1.30am in readiness for our 3.30am alarm call. It's an eerie feeling wandering the banks of a remote Icelandic stream at such an hour with only the call of nesting curlews as your company. As for the trout they had other ideas at this time!
