Fly fishing - A hobby that turns into a passion?

Would you like to catch one of these beautiful, BIG trouts?
Well this guy just landed 5 big ones and at least 10 smaller ones in a day.

Imagine taking them on a small nymph with a thin leader. It is an adrenaline rush from the first pull until you finally land it with sore upper arm from fighting it.

Rods became availalbe on the ION beat late August and until mid September. Please contact us for further information.

It is good to fish alone but perhaps better with a good friend.
What do you prefer?
Or is both better?

Take a deep breath! You may not need to travel across the world for an enjoyable fishing tour. Perhaps there is a small stream in your area. Pack picnic, call your best friend and go and check it out.

We know that some of you are not able to travel because of "you know what". Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing you in Iceland, when the time is right.

Good morning world. Very, very good morning! 🥰

Have a wonderful weekend anglers and other people 🐟

Flyfishing at midnight in Iceland.

Sun sets for couple of hours now and every night from now until December 22 the night gets a little longer.

A precious flower by the roots of a glacier.

Is it possible to get tired of fly fishing? We think not. We actually think that the more you do it, the more you love it.

trip advisor reviews

Holaa River Arctic Char
Read More
We fished the Holaa River and had a wonderful day. Our guide Sverrir picked us up at our cottage in the morning and drove about 45 minutes to the River. He supplied waders (excellent condition) and fly fishing gear. It was a short walk from the parking area to the River.
The Holaa River has a decent flow, but with a firm gravel bottom so wading was pleasant. Sverrir put us on the fish immediately.
The River holds lots of fish, and we all caught plenty of Arctic Char fishing nymphs with strike indicators. We had 20+ hooks ups, 15 catches, saved 3 for a great dinner. Others who fished the river did not have the success we did, thanks to Sverrir. He provided packed sandwiches, snacks and made some coffee along the bank for us for a mid-day break.
I would definitely do this trip again and would recommend this to anyone, including beginners.
My wife even caught 2 Fish!!!!

Best Outfitter in Iceland!

Harpa and her team are very professional. They communicate well, all guides were on time and very knowledgeable.
We executed 6+ excursions over 4 days + transfers to/from the airport. Every driver and guide we interacted with was friendly, knew the area well + flexible with any and all requests.

I would highly recommend anyone looking to do excursions of any kind to reach out to them first.​

Great 4 days of fly fishing for wild trout
Read More
We spent 4 great days on the Icelandic Highlands fly fishing for brown trout and arctic char. We appreciated the personal welcome by Johanna very much.
This is a fantastic destination for fishermen looking for almost untouched surroundings, wild fish and who are happy to stay in a rustic cabin, self catering.
