For the last six years the catch statistics have exceeded six fish per rod per day on this remarkable river. When first viewed from the road it has a humble aspect the 14 km of private fishing from Laxvatn to where it joins the Vatnsdals are some of the most productive in the country. The current is placid flowing though fertile pastures except higher up where the river is squeezed through hard rock bands. The water colour has a slight tinge to it hiding the salmon well and instilling a false sense of security. This could be why the fish on Lax sum are so incredibly aggressive and will readily take hitched tubes and micro flies. The river is a fly fishermans paradise and most of the 50 named pools are short and dont take long to fish. The average catch since 1974 is 1028 salmon per year equating to over six fish per day per rod over the 80 day season which is just staggering. LAX SUM
