South Greenland Fly Fishing
Narsaq, Greenland

"Most waters that we fish do not get more than 20 fishing days per year. The arctic char have never seen a fly before in their lives. For fly fishing we use primarily dry flies, nymphs and streamers. Emergers, gurglers and other surface flies can also be used and will also produce fish.During summertime the arctic char run the rivers and lakes from the ocean. Their colors can vary from bright silver to greenish yellow, gray with orange, black with deep red and everything in between."
