The first salmon from River Norðurá

The fishing started in Norðurá in Borgarfjörður this morning and the first salmon came ashore at the fishing spot Stokkhylsbrot, but it is not uncommon for the first one to be landed at that place. 

It was Dagur Svendsen who caught the first salmon in Norðurá this season. It took a small red Frances conehead and was 74 cm.
