Fly Fishing in the Land of Fire and Ice
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 offering intimate waters, great wading, seclusion, and world-class service, fly fishing in Iceland definitely needs to be on the top of the list. With fishing scenarios focused on conservation and low angling pressure through the utilization of the classical European style “beat” system, many of the rivers in Iceland see very few anglers throughout the entire season, something that guarantees lots of action, large and healthy fish, and private, secluded fishing. 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.
