Iceland


I took a trip up to Iceland for a week with friends - not fishing - just sight-seeing, swimming in the Blue Lagoon and eating some of the most fantastic food I've ever tasted. But as I always do each morning I checked The Wye river levels on my phone...


And they looked pretty perfect for the first time this winter. Now just because the levels are right it doesn't mean it will fish, they need time to settle - but it was looking good for a trip back as soon as I landed back in England...


The red dotted line is when my plane landed! Rather rotten luck - we're running out of time - fingers crossed I'll get at least one long weekend on there before the season ends...

    1. No, unfortunately not - booked to see them on the boat tour but each night it was cancelled because of poor conditions. But did the Golden Circle tour, saw the geysers, swam in the Blue Lagoon... Shame the lights didn't appear but still a great trip.

  2. Just wanted to share that Iceland is possible to fish without selling your house. Our lakes can offer some fantastic fishing. Trout and Arctic char is what you will get here. Here is more information. http://www.rent.is/blog/fishing-in-iceland/
