Wonderful fishing days on Flokadalsa river in Iceland

ION beat last night.

Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny, and calm summer day. That is wonderful to most Icelanders (as we do not get too many of those days) but it makes the fishing more challenging. That did not stop this gentleman from landing several trout, including this beauty on Lake Thingvellir.

Well done 👍

Who agrees: Fish that you really have to work for gives you more pleasure than the ones who are "easy"?

Prime time days just became available on the streach reaching from East Rangá to West Rangá, called Thverá. It is a 6 rod beat with a self catering lodge.
First 2 weeks of August have always been the most productive days on the river and it is common we are catching 20-30 salmon per day on the 6 rods.
August 4 - 7 (afternoon - noon) available.
Please pm for more information and prices.

Fishing report from Iceland.
We are opening our salmon rivers in June and most of our rivers will be open by the end of the month. Fishing is starting well and we are very happy to have plenty of water in our rivers and mountains for the upcoming fishing weeks.
My favorite (Harpa) fishing technique is the riffling hitch and early summer that works like a charm. You let the fly skate over the surface and since you are fishing up close you get to look the fish in the eye when it takes your fly. It is so very exciting and thrilling.
This hitch tube has given me most of my hitch salmon. Perhaps other hitch tubes work just as well, but it is hard to try something different when you have something that works. Check it out: Haugur Hitch

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

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.
