Fiskistafir “Fishing staves” (or singular “Fiskistafur”), are graphical galdr’s meant to help you with fishing. Often made to be etched into your sinkers or your rod, these staves are specifically made to attract fish to your equipment. The staves seen here originates from Icelandic Manuscript “Galdrakver” (Lbs 2917 a 4to)
As teased a bit earlier this month, a stencil pack containing various examples of the Ægishjálmur is now available.
I decided to start structuring these files inside a Google-drive archive, both for easy access as well as for easy updates and editing from my end.
As of today the archive contains two folders, one for the Ægishjálmur and one for the Vegvisir. As I progress with my work, more content will be made available in this folder.
Everything contained in the archive will be under the same CC licence, meaning that you basically can use it in any way you see fit, as long as you remember to give credit and don’t alter the licence on any work containing the files I’m sharing.
Over the years, I have had a few tattoo artist contacting me, regarding getting their hands on some good quality artwork for stencils.I have also had quite a few people looking to get a tattoo done, asking me for a good copy to use as a stencil. Since I have been hard at work doing content for my book, I figured I might as well make some of this work available for public use.

The designs found in this post and the attached zip-folder can be copied and redistributed in any medium or format, as well as remixed, transformed, and built upon in any way and for any purpose, even commercially.
Basically this means that you can print these out, use them as stencils, display them and in any other way reuse and share them as you wish.
The only demands are that you give appropriate credit, and provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.
