Hofsá is a long and glorious salmon river in northern Iceland and it is blessed with the most beautiful fly fishing water. It is one of Iceland´s most prolific rivers with the salmon running 30km up to a large waterfall and it has seven beats that are perfect for a single or double–handed rod.
The river follows strict conservation measures and produces plenty of fish in the 20lb range. The landscape is stunning with a wide, braided river valley, which turns into a river canyon as you travel further upstream.
As on many Icelandic rivers floating lines, small fly patterns and hitched tubes areexcellent. The river is also easily fished with single-handed rods, although given that Iceland is often windy, a double-handed rod should be available as well. Six to seven rods fish the lodge, and the five-year average is 900 salmon per year.
