This smallish gin clear Icelandic stream has been hailed as one of the best kept secrets in global angling. It is a technical river where stealth among other attributes is needed. Wild native brown trout swim its waters remnants of the Ice age stocks that stayed on when the glaciers retreated. Real dinosaurs relics from times past. They are on average 3-4 lbs with the monsters ranging to 20 lbs. Every season several of 10 lbs are caught with many in the 5 to 9 lbs class. The season starts at the start of April often in sub-zero temperatures and it fishes to the end of September. Spring is most popular with the local clientele when fishing with streamers and weighted nymphs is most effective. Later in June July and August delicate dry fly fishing takes over and is most productive. Late in the season there are usually few rods fishing the river. It is an underrated time of the season as the browns tend to get very aggressive as the spawning period looms ever closer. In essence it is a midge fishery but strong hatches of caddis are also in the river. Turn over one of the black lava rocks in the river and see the size and quantity of cased caddis. The river is fished with single handed rods and the line weight and size and weight of leader depend on weather conditions. As mentioned this is a very technical river but the rewards are amazing.
