Salmon fishing in Iceland is sooo expensive – Well not in all cases…
Home of many 20-pounders, the Sog River is recognized as one of the finest Atlantic salmon rivers in Iceland. Sog river is only 65 km east from our lovely capital Reykjavik.
Sog river is the largest spring fed river in Iceland and is renowned for its amazing bird-life, beautiful surroundings and high percentage of multi-sea-winter salmon. Also, Sog has a very good stock of Arctic char and every year char of size 5-7 pounds are caught.
Sog river is all private water and has six salmon beats and a total of 13 rods. The salmon season is from June 24 until September 24. The Sog Bildfell beat has been the most productive beat on Sog and frequently produces the heaviest salmon each year, meaning salmon of 20 pounds or bigger. The name of the other beats are Asgardur(3), Alvidra(3), Sydri-Bru(1), Tannastadir(2) and Thrastarlundur(1).
Accommodation on the Sog Bildsfell Beat is provided in a very comfortable self catering lodge beside the river. The lodge has a very well equipped kitchen for cooking, 4 twin-bedded bedrooms, WCs & showers, dining and sitting room. Also, the lodge has a seperate storage room for your waders and fishing clothing.
The salmon fishing is done with single, switch or double-handed rods using floating lines with small to medium size flies early in the season. Most common flies are Red & Black Frances, Blue Charm, Red & Green But, Snaelda, Sunray Shadow and other traditional Icelandic flies. Only fly fishing is allowed with a catch and release policy.
Fishing offer for 2019: Three days of salmon fishing on Sog Bildsfell Beat and three nights accommodation in the Sog fishing lodge with bed-linen & towels, on a single occupancy basis for a total price of £888 or EUR 999 or US$ 1,100. The fishing starts at 4pm on your first day and ends at noon on your last day of fishing.
Sog river is surrounded with photoscenic areas and the most popular tourist attractions in the south of Iceland such as the volcano Mt. Hekla, lovely lava fields, Glacier Langjokull, the famous geothermal area of Geysir, the waterfall Gullfoss and the National Park at Thingvellir. It is well worth to spend a few days extra to explore these beautiful attractions.
Travel arrangements to Iceland from most cities in Europe are around three hours flying time. There are about 27 airlines that offer flights during the summer months and the earlier you book the better are the prices. You will need to arrive in Iceland one day before your fishing starts and you will depart Iceland on the morning after your fishing ends.
I can arrange hotel/guesthouse accommodation before/after your fishing, if you like. I will meet and greet you on arrival in Iceland, transport you to your accommodation in Reykjavik and get you settled in properly.
If you would like any more information on this splendid offer please do not hesitate to contact me.
I look very much forward to hearing from you.
