Kris and Birkir were great guides. They spent plenty of time helping my kids learn to fly fish. They were very friendly and knowledgeable. We caught many Arctic Char and they are maybe the best eating fish I have ever had.

My three adult sons and I would like to go fly fishing in Iceland. Arctic Char, browns, rainbows, preferably on dry flies. I used to do wading, but would want to fish from boats. So, where is the best fishing early in July?

If so, what dates are available 30th August to 7th September 2017 and what costs are involved please. Regards Steve R
