Best Salmon Fishing Spots in Iceland

"Iceland is the Holy grail for Salmon Fishing"- Eric Clapton

Iceland is home to beautiful almost estranged nature from freezing waterfalls to boiling volcanic waters, streamed by wild and untamed rivers. These rivers are charged with heavy salmon and the stark red-bellied arctic char with catches of up to 15-20 a day. The fishing is challenging as they are easily alarmed, but any angler wouldn’t miss casting their bait in Iceland, whether this is for its boundless prime Salmon or its mere scenery. If you get into it with a big salmon, hold onto the rod low to the water to fight a big salmon. That will keep the power of the rod coming from the back, the butt section near where you are holding onto. Don't depend on the tip of the rod with a high rod position, leaders snap and salmon shake themselves off most often when the rod is tipped up. After reading story upon story of salmon fishing, connect with the fish out in one of the world's finest fisheries, it's worth the wait!
