The small salmon river Hallá is a 2 rod fishing river with a delicate self catering lodge. It runs into the bay of Húnafloi bay in the north, same bay as many of the best salmon fishing rivers up north. Hallá is fast flowing and rocky in the lower part, but the upper reaches are mostly slow flowing with cut-bank pools, ideal for fly- fishing with light tackle, here is where the hitch methood will be on fire.. We have available dates during some good periods this summer, the price is good, the fishing is good, all so nice where one can be totally on his own.
The small Hallá River falls in to the Bay of Húnaflói in the North of Iceland. It is a sensitive and small river, where one can be totally on his own.
Hallá is fast flowing and rocky in the lower part, but the upper reaches are mostly slow flowing with cut-bank pools, ideal for fly- fishing with light tackle.
Hallá is a river fished with only two rods, but guests have about 10 km of river to fish. In order to preserve the salmon in Hallá river, the farmers have kept the river closed for several years. The project seems to be working, because the spawning and return rates are now going up.
Catch and release is encouraged in this small and gin- clear river to preserve the enigmatic Salmon that run in Hallá River. The river has a self- catering guesthouse, located about 3km upstream from the mouth of the river, with a view towards the Bay.
Hallá is small and delicate, therefor we recommend you to bring small flies and hitch tubes for early- and mid season fishing:
Black & Red Frances (sizes 12 – 18)Black & Blue (sizes 12 – 18) Collie Dog (¼ – 1 inch) Madeleine (sizes 12 – 18) Green Butt (sizes 12 – 18)
and last but not least the mighty hitch tubes.
When the autumn chill arrives, the angler should bring the same fly patterns, but as micro cones and/or ½ – 1 inch tubes.
