Iceland: Reykjavik Angling Club Trip Report

August 16, 2018

With a population of less than 350,000 and more miles of pristine water than could realistically be fished in a lifetime, Iceland offers some of the best and most legitimate fly fishing opportunities for trophy brown trout, arctic char and Atlantic Salmon found anywhere in the world. For anglers looking for an incredibly unique fishing experience that offers intimate waters, great wading, seclusion and world-class service, fly fishing in Iceland definitely needs to be on top of the list.

Matt and Tara recently returned from a trip to Raudholar Lodge through the Reykjavik Angling Club and had a terrific time pursing Iceland’s fabled brown trout. As Matt says, “If your dreams consist of monster brown trout taking the dry fly, while feeling like you’re the only person left in the world… then this is where those dreams are made. EPIC!”

As far as guides are concerned, “Our guide is the guide of the guides in this area. He was born in that valley and has fished it for over 35 years. It’s his river as far as me and my wife were concerned and he knew every hole in it! We feel that we left not only being educated on that water but, as well as gaining a friend.” He went on to say, “These are some of the best people on the planet- made this southern couple feel right at home.” And when asked if they’d ever recommend the destination to a friend the answer was, “YES.”

Anglers can expect to have sections of the river totally to themselves each day, with some of the most scenic backdrops and landscapes found anywhere in the world of freshwater fishing.
