Some last great openings for Iceland!

BY NOW most salmon anglers will realise this year’s season in Russia is cancelled for anglers in the West, which means many have turned to Iceland for their fishing in 2022. Iceland is filling up fast, so for those of you who have yet to make plans, DON’T MISS OUT!

There is still some limited availability with Strengir. Iceland was one of the first countries to return to normality regarding travel and Covid testing is no longer required for entry to the country. Once you are here you will find that life is back to normal with no need for wearing masks, no restrictions on gatherings, or any of the other inconveniences we all have had to endure.

Salmon Fishing

The Jökla salmon fishing is becoming a firm favourite with visiting and local anglers and creating a lot of repeat bookings. In last summer’s heatwave, that affected most of the country, the Jökla remained at a good level and provided consistent fishing. The forecast from the company that operates the Dam a the top of the river system is that the overflow may not happen until late August or even early September.
