The key to the majority of the salmon rivers in Iceland is the clarity of the water and the stunning scenary, as well, of course, the reliability of the fishing itself. The clear water allows for the use of very small and skated flies, often making for an intimate and visual experience. There are a wide range of Icelandic rivers, some big, some small. It is important to tailor your tackle to the river you are fishing. Single handed rods for smaller rivers and larger double handed rods for the bigger rods.
