On a trip across the Pond. Fished a day on the River Holaa in Iceland with a guide. Mostly midge nymphs, fished upstream, with an indicator. One brown (15-16") and 9 Arctic Char (12-22"). Had both resident and anadromous char. The big one almost reached the backing twice. On a 5wt. When I get back, I'll try to post pictures.

It is spendy, as each river has permits plus licenses and such. I was fishing the "kiddie" fishery for small resident fish. Tiny being about 12", biggest 22" and we saw larger. The folks I went with. Go Fishing Iceland, do Atlantics as well as Sea Trout (anadromous Browns). They provide everything and it is a fun day. Somebody wanting to chase a variety of truly wild fish in nice setting could spend a week or so and get, I think, both resident and anadromous Browns and Arctics plus get into Atantics.

Not as much as I would like. Almost all my fishing the last 5-6 years has been out of state/country. Spendy, but much better that I have found locally.

Did they dig up any traditional buried sheep heads for your dinner? Hope not!! A restaurant near the big church in Reykjavik had a whale dish on their menu when we visited. Full disclosure - I took a pass on that opportunity.

First place we stayed had lamb, beef, horse, and whale on the menu. Plus some duck the chef had shot. The lamb was really good.
