Icelandic Fly Fishing Open Day






Join Throstur Ellidason from Angling Service Strengir at Farlows of Pall Mall on Tuesday 24 March 2015 from 11am to discuss the incredible Icelandic fishing on offer and taste some delicious smoked char and salmon from Iceland at the same time! And, what’s more, if you are inspired it is not too late to book your dream trip to Iceland as there are a few remaining openings for the season.

Strengir offer wide variety of Iceland fly fishing for salmon, sea trout, brown trout and hard-fighting Arctic char at prices that will surprise you! Iceland is easy to travel to, and it’s quick too with a three hour flight to Reykjavik from London (Or it’s just two hours from Glasgow!). English is widely spoken and both the guiding and the fishing are excellent.

For salmon fishing Angling Service Strengir offer the following rivers, with prime weeks still available – if you are quick!

Breiðdalsá, East Iceland
A beautiful valley with easy access where many multi-sea-winter fish are caught each year. There is over 40km of fishing for 6-8 rods with every type of pool imaginable in Breiðdalsá – a river that has to be seen to be believed – and the Breiðdalsa Lodge is regarded by many as the finest full-service fishing lodge in Iceland, with a fantastic view across the Breiðdalur valley to the high peaks of the surrounding mountains. It is an easy river and ideal for families and individuals alike and it suits experienced anglers as well as those looking to land their first Icelandic salmon.

Jökla, North East Iceland
A spectacular and remote river system, which comprises the large Jökla river along with several smaller tributaries – indeed there are more pools to learn than can possibly be achieved in one trip! A recently-built fish ladder has opened up the upper Jökla and fish are coming through strongly and there’s a huge variety of fishing at prices lower than ever seen before in Icelandic salmon fishing!

Combined package –  Breiðdalsa and Jökla rivers
It’s ideal to combine a week fishing on both of these rivers as there is just a 1.5 hour transfer time between them and they offer a fantastic variety of fishing at a reasonable price!

Hrútafjarðará, North West Iceland
One of the most sought after rivers in Iceland with good-sized salmon as well as sea-run Arctic char and, currently, there is just one slot remaining at prime time for 4 days from 6th – 10th August on this 3-rod river. A private river and lodge mean it is ideal for small groups wanting to have the river and lodge to themselves. The booking is often taken on a self-catering basis with a guide only on the first day to get anglers started, but a full service option is also possible.
