Arrival to Iceland

blog-Aug-2-2014-1-flyfishing-in-icelandWe’re six hours ahead of Idaho time here in Iceland. I rolled in at about 9 AM this morning. I took what they call the FlyBus to Reykjavik BSI bus terminal and Thorir Gretar, a friend of Ingo’s and Icelandic Fly Fishermen, picked me up and hauled me to the fly shop he works at and filled me with delicious cups of European coffee. I am now presently settled into the Laugabjarg Guesthouse where I’ll spend tonight before heading northeast tomorrow to begin Atlantic salmon fishing.

blog-Aug-2-2014-2-reykjavik-icelandThe temperature is warm 50° but it’s been drizzling and raining since I flew in. The locals claim they’ve had only three days of summer so far this season. That’s rough! But, if cool wet weather helps the salmon fishing I’m all good. I certainly came prepared with every warm Simms clothing product, rain protection and good waders!

Off to check out Reykjavik for some fish and chips and a few brews!

For those just tuning in – for the next ten days I’m a guest of Icelandic Fly Fishermen -check them out!

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
