Default My cheap fishing Trip for the Artic Char Iceland

Hi Flyfishers,
Here, i will show some nice Pictures of my flyfishing Holidays at Lake Thingvallavatn. I travelled like a Backpacker, and it was a very cheap Trip. I paid at all 420 Euros for 10 days in Iceland, all inclusive (fishingcard, flight etc..).

Better my Fotos will tell the story:

I didn't know the words cheap, and Iceland could be used in the same paragraph.

One of my favorite places to visit on this planet - thanks for the photos and trip down memory lane. Was hoping to get there this summer but work intervened. I will return next year for sure for visit #8.
