Nordlingafljot – one of my favorite salmon rivers in the world

thumbs_s1thumbs_s2006_08199





One of my favorite salmon rivers in the world is the Nordlingafljot in Iceland, a gin-clear river rushing over volcanic rocks and tundra. I have spent many a wonder summer there catching salmon – stalking really, because only five rods are allowed to fish the nearly 15 miles of river, and you are really hunting the fish. Had many a beautiful eve fishing with a small fly and single-handed rod catching five or six silvery salmon between 8 and 20 pounds. If you are looking for an unforgettable fishing and walking vacation, check out this website. It’s in Icelandic, but if you like what you see, contact the man running the river, Johannes “Joi” Sigmarsson. Joi is an old friend, his email is on the last page of the website, and he is fluent in English. Tell him I sent you.
