Endless Landscapes, No People!
For the past several decades, a small number of Danish fishermen have been fishing the coastal rivers of Western Greenland during the short summer season for sea-run arctic char. Almost every river on the world’s biggest island holds good numbers of char from late June through September, and anglers “in the know” would make the trip to catch large char in impressive numbers. Greenland became known as a fishing mecca for the Danes (and their Scandinavian neighbours in Sweden and Norway) during the 1970s and 1980s, although at the time there was very little in the way of fishing infrastructure. Most anglers struggled with transportation logistics and – when they could finally reach the rivers – dealt with basic and rustic camping conditions. Subsequently, the 1990s, interest in traveling to Greenland to fish remote rivers began to drop in the Scandinavian market. Around 2010, our outfitting partners began work on new camps and programs, and today their developed offerings and exclusive fishing concessions have become the standard for great fly fishing in Greenland. Through our outfitting partners, Yellow Dog is excited to offer these amazing fisheries to the world, and we believe strongly that Greenland offers an exciting, adventurous, and totally unique new frontier for the traveling angler.
