Iceland Here I Come!

blog-July-31-2014-1-icelandicflyfishermenIf there’s one place I’ve been striving to get to the last 25 years it’s Iceland.  Many customers that I served during my fly shop days in Jackson, Wyoming went to Iceland annually.  The stories of its beauty and the numbers of Atlantic salmon they caught was mind blowing.  But so was the cost.

 

I worked some angles to get there.  As you know my customer/friends have generously taken me some great places over the years.  Iceland came up several times, however it never transpired.

50 countries and I hadn’t been to Iceland! They shrieked.

 

blog-July-31-2014-3-flyfishing-in-icelandIngo Helgason and Icelandic Fly Fishermen are having me as their guest for the next two weeks.  We’ll be chasing Atlantic salmon and I’ll be documenting the trip day by day.  As usual, I won’t have internet much of the time but I will post every chance I get.  Within a few days after the trip the complete journey will be up.  Stay tuned – this should be incredible!

    Wow, Jeff, very nice. I am glad your friends have chosen to host you in Iceland, as I know I will enjoy reading your posts about this special fishery from your unique and highly experienced perspective. Unfortunately it is yet another great place I am sure I will never get to visit–so really look forward to hearing about it. Safe travels and best regards. –KK
