    Default Iceland trip

    I had a great time in Iceland and did a bit of fishing.
    Lake fishing for arctic char was fantastic. Lively fish that get into your backing.



    & found some nice browns in the moving water.

    Wow! That looks like an epic trip. The browns alone get my heart beating faster. Where you there on a fishing trip or for other reasons and just managed to get some fishing in?

    My family went for a vacation around the country.
    I was lucky enough to sample some spots along the way.
    Fishing permits are required for moving water and some of the preferred rivers get quite costly and are often booked in advance.
    Fortunately, I found some less know water that was more in my budget.

    Great fish and I'm eyeing your set-up; is it a 3wt or 5wt, couldn't quite make out the number but I love those sage 500 reels.
