Mountain fishing in Iceland- like fishing in a science fiction movie
The Highland fishing in Iceland for wild brown trout and Arctic char is probably one of the best kept secrets of fly fishing in Iceland. If you like magnificent scenery, stunning mountains and hard volcanic landforms and you enjoy catching hard fighting Arctic char and colorful brown trout then this is the place for you. The fishing is mainly on floating line and using black flies but it's good to have slow sinking line for the deep Lake Ljótipollur.
The fishing can include several lovely lakes that are like an oasis in the middle of lava fields. The lakes all contain brown trout and char with the size ranging from 1pound up to 4 pounds.
This exciting fishing trip requires a 4WD vehicles tour and travels through lava fields and over black lava sand which are surrounded by beautiful mountain scenery.
A short drive to Landmannalaugar geothermal area for lunch is also possible and could include time to relax and bathe in the warm natural pond next to a lovely lava field.
