Rod Share
It is quite common to share a rod & room with a partner which keeps the cost down as you‘ll have 12 hours of salmon fishing daily.

Anglers use switch or double handed rods, using floating or intermediate lines with small to medium size flies early in the season.

Flies to use
Most common flies are Red & Black Frances, Blue Charm, Red & Green But, Snaelda, Sunray Shadow and other traditional Icelandic flies.

Extend your stay for a few more days to the river Sog and visit the National Park at Thingvellir. The lava fields and volcano Mt. Hekla. Langjokull glacier and geothermal area of Geysirnd,
