Amazing landscape and big salmon! Imagine standing in a crystal clear river with two beautiful waterfalls on one side and big salmon jumping just below you. Pretty amazing, right?

Song: What makes you happy

Frozen flyline. Not enjoyable to fish when it is to cold. But it is always fun.

Respect and enjoy nature 🌻🌺🌳🦌🐄🦊💗 ...

It was a cold April 1st, first day of fishing season in Iceland. Still a productive opening on Leirá river. On 2 rods 34 fish were caught which is a record opening for the river. Sizes of seatrout were also good, from 45 - 82 cm.
Happy Fishing Season

Cold and fun in Leira river.

Spring fishing in Iceland opens TODAY!!!! Icelanders can go fishing but no guests are visiting Iceland from abroad these days. We hope you are all following the instructions from your local authorities. Let's end this together so we can all go fishing together shortly <3
Take care dear friends around the world and hopefully we will see you soon!

Brennan is a 3 rod junction pool of Hvítá and Thverá river. There is a good, newly renovated lodge for guests, with 3 twin bedrooms.
Best time to fish: July
What you catch: Salmon and after mid August also seatrout.

Spring salmon in Iceland. Salmon season starts in June and the first salmon are the big aggressive ones.
Have you ever had a big spring salmon taking a small fly? The fight can easily last 30 minutes or more and the adrenaline rush is unlike anything else. We sometimes feel like we held our breath the whole time... and perhaps we did! Life is not only better when you fish. Fishing also gives you superpowers!


The team at Salmologic develops and produces high quality fishing equipment tailored to the needs of those who fly fish for the Atlantic salmon and brown trout. 

We offer a wide selection of rods, reels, lines, flies, tippets and leaders, accessories and more.

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.
