Direct fligths near to our main rivers from London!


There has never been easier to go fishing in Iceland than now since for the first time the will be next season direct International flights to main town of east Iceland, Egilsstaðir from London Gatwick airport. These flights are are arranged by the travel agency Discover The World in UK and in this link below has further information. Angling Service Strengir has arranged that all anglers booked with us can use this uniq opportunity to travel nearly directly to our nearby Breiddalsa and Jökla fishery as seen on the map above close to Egilsstaðir. From that local airport is one hour transfer to Breiddalsa river, but only about 20 min transfer to Jökla river! It can not get much closer than that anywhere! Fligths are on Saturday and Wednesdays leaving Gatwick in afternoon and arriving same evening back to Gatwick from Egilsstaðir. So ideal to stay full seven nights in our lodges, or even shorter periods three or four nights when combined with these flights.

Egilsstaðir airport has up till now mainly been used by regular domestic flights within Iceland,
plus privat planes, but now it will change (May-Sept '16) with the new fligths from Gatwick.

This pool in Jökla river is only about 20 min away from the airport!

I look forward to arrange the best and easiest fishing trips for our regular guests as well as new one´s as long as the are availabilities in the rivers and in the new flights. But early enquirys are advisable.

I will be in Oslo next Thursday 29. October donating fishing in Jökla river for and look forward to meet Norwegian anglers and others that evening.

All the best,

Great season finished and bookings good for Iceland next year!

The season of 2015 is winding down. Most of the salmon fishing is over and 2-3 weeks left of the sea trout season. The salmon fishing has been outstanding and many rivers, among them our very own Hrútafjarðará and Jökla, have registered record catches. Both had over 800 salmon landed which far exceeded their former records.

Overall the season in Iceland was one of the best ever, which is especially outstanding as last year was one of the worst ever. Breiðdalsá, our third salmon fishery, was ok, we had nearly 400 landed salmon there which is reasonable considering that all too frequently the river flooded due to heavy rains.

Sea char were also more numerous on Jökla and Breiðdalsá than in the last few years and our brown trout fishery, Minnivallalækur, was better than in recent seasons. So all good there!

We have started booking for 2016 and already we feel more interest than ever, of course due to the fantastic fishing we had this year. One item of considerable note: It is looking more and more likely next year that it will be direct flights twice a week from Gatwick London to Egilsstaðir town in east Iceland, which is a mere half an hours drive to Jökla and one hour to Breiðdalsá. So we can almost call it direct flights from Gatwick to Jökla and Breiðdalsá! This would shut down the flying first to Keflavík, being driven from there to Reykjavík for hotel and then again for domestic flight to Egilsstaðir. And then have to get to the rivers!

Also: I will be in London 6.-11. October, among other things attending The Fly Fishers Club 7.October on depate about stocking of salmon rivers. I'm hoping I get to meet as many of my friends and clients as I can while in the UK.

All the best,
