Prize Draw: Win a Fantastic Fly Fishing Experience on the East Ranga River, Iceland

The Atlantic Salmon Trust (AST) has, once again, partnered with the East Ranga river and RIPP Sporting to offer this bucket list fly fishing experience.

Included* in this four-day trip (20 – 23rd August 2022) is full board accommodation at the East Ranga Lodge, and a single en-suite room for each rod. The Lodge is situated in the south-west corner of Iceland just 80 minutes from the Icelandic capital Reykjavik, with unbroken views of snowy Mt. Hekla and the Eyjarfjallajokull glacier to the east. Flowing past the fishing lodge is the East Ranga river, one of the most productive Atlantic salmon rivers in the world, with a five-year average catch of 4299 salmon, high even by Icelandic standards, and an all-time record of 9070 salmon landed in the 2020 season. The prize is for two rods fishing six half-day sessions over four days, fully guided.

Worth £12,000 and described by Jim H, 2021’s prize draw winner, as “absolutely terrific” with “first-class” guides, this will be a memorable experience for any angler looking to cast in one of Iceland’s most iconic rivers. Click Here to see more about the East Ranga
