River Blanda has over 2000 salmon caught

River Blanda is totally on fire and is now the first river in Iceland to break the 2000 salmon barrier. All beats of the river are now packed with salmon with catches per day between 100 -200 salmon.

Beat one is now well over 1000 salmon and only four rods fish the beat. We are not hesitant to say that Beat one in Blanda has one of the best catch to rod ratio of any beat in the world.

But there is more to river Blanda, the upper beats are more demanding but provide perfect fly fishing pools with plenty of big salmon. The top most beat is different from the rest of the river with much less water and totally gin clear, perfect for hitch.

If you want world class fishing then river Blanda should be your natural choice. We would recommend combining two days on each beat which would make for a diverse and excellent trip were you could use all techniques at your disposal. Heavy gear in Beats one and three where a double hander is a must and then a lighter single hander on beat 4.

We have already started booking for 2016 and would welcome your inquiry.
