Hello clients and other friends

Following our outburst of Covid 19 things are fast getting back to normal. The pandemic hit us pretty hard but we tackled it unlike most others and have, for a while now, been in full  control with few if any new infections. The authorities deemed it safe to open up our borders on the 15th of June. So Iceland is open. Every traveler will though be tested upon arrival and if anyone tests positive, it is a two week quarantine, if negative you are free to go crazy in Iceland.

Airline companies have started to fly up here, also of course our own Icelandair. Tourists are starting to feature again up here.

As for the fishing, the trout fishing this spring was mostly outstanding, although our Minnivallalækur (Minni) was a late arrival due to a very cold spring following an unusually cold winter which featured far more snowfields than usual. Above photo´s are from Minni which is having now good sport as we enter the summer and dry fly fishing is getting outstanding.

So, as we move into the salmon season, water levers are far healthier than last year. Most Icelandic rivers have opened up for fishing and the results have been better than we hoped for. Following a bad year for grilse last year, we expected a bad year for mws's this year. But we have been pleasantly surprised. There are quite a few big one's out there and grilse runs appear to be picking up like in our Hrútafjarðará river which has just started with some good fishing. The fish above was caught today and is around 20 lb from upper part of Hrúta!

Due to Covid - cancellations we do have some availabilities and as Iceland is now Covid - safe it might be a nice idea to make the trip up here after all. The openings are in Jökla and Breiðdalsá whichopen next week. You only need to contact us for further information..
