No other freshwater fish is found as far north; it is, for instance, the only fish species in Lake Hazen on Ellesmere Island in the Canadian Arctic. It is one of the rarest fish species in Britain and Ireland, found mainly in deep, cold, glacial lakes, and is at risk from acidification. In other parts of its range, such as the Nordic countries, it is much more common and is fished extensively.

Char can be found in the UK, although very rare they can sometimes be caught in the deep lochs of northern Scotland such as Loch Choire. More commonly found in Iceland, Greenland and Norway. Rivers and lakes accommodate Arctic char in these countries up to enormous sizes.
An 8 ft 5 wt is your typical rod of choice when taking on char. However, there are many different ways to catch these fish. You may be streamer fishing in the lakes of Iceland for fish up to 10lbs, this would require something with a little more power. Or perhaps you are dry fly fishing for the tricky char in smaller glacial streams. Pick up the phone and ask our advice.
Arctic char can be caught on a variety of flies, dry flies are popular, however streamer and nymph fishing can be far more effective.
