Iceland FF Opportunities (Short & Sweet)

“The short, bright and beautiful summers, racing into blossom and bloom and back to autumn in a matter of a few weeks, provide a fleeting opportunity for sport in a truly primeval landscape. A landscape in which is played the oldest of games – to tempt the prized quarry from its rock or ledge invoking an instinct as old as the volcanic amphitheatre that hosts the event.”  (http://www.flyfishiceland.com/public/publicWrapper.php)

A glimpse of fly fishing in an intimate setting, as we would all enjoy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36rS0RgSefs

is-fishing-village-th1You know, if I recall any travel show I have watched about Iceland, the show depicts a frozen landscape, people driving over a surreal passageway to some warm safe haven where food and drink can be had at a small fortune. Frozen and expensive…not the most inviting invite to visit what must be very hardy people…but, as is the case our impressions are formed by others and we grasp some fleeting images and words and form lasting beliefs, that may only be true in part, if at all. So, silly me I noted visitors from Iceland. Well, hmmm, it thaws in Finland, Alaska, Montana, Slovenia, Manitoba, and even Minnesota. So, I looked into Iceland’s fly fishing opportunities. I expected Atlantic Salmon and Iceland has classic salmon fishing opportunities, but the ‘sea trout’, brown trout are beautiful and the landscape appears windswept and beautiful. I have a new appreciation of Iceland’s opportunities. I am replacing the images of months of frozen tundra with the images from the Global Fly Fisher link…much more appealing…now, if the costs could come down. Wonder if I have family in Iceland?     http://globalflyfisher.com/reports/iceland2003/
