Why Fish for Salmon in Iceland?
Icelandic salmon rivers are gin clear with some of the world's best fishing opportunities, no mosquitos, no river poaching and virtually no illegal fishing. Iceland is a world leader in salmon management and conservation since its 1932 ban of ocean fishing for salmon and the introduction in 1933 of a salmon management program and mandatory fishing associations for salmon rivers. Since 1970, anglers have to disinfect tackle brought to the country. The quality of wild Icelandic salmon is protected by a short fishing season, limits on fishing hours and number of rods per river. Iceland has qualified, experienced gillies, good tackle stores, a reputation for creating catchy flies and bettering fishing techniques. Iceland is unpolluted and a safe salmon country with a modern western infrastructure. Security is not a problem and health care is first class.
