Locations from the movie

We have fished in very different Salmon rivers in Iceland to make this movie. Here is more information about the rivers, and links.


Vídidalsá is one of Island´s classic rivers with perfect fly water and a reputation for producing exeptionally large salmon. It is located about 230 km from Reykjavík and is fished with only 8 rods. Víðidalsá is a medium to large size river with pools averaging 20 to 30 m in width.


The river is relatively small, making it the perfect stage for some fantastic sight fishing for salmon with single handed rods and small flies. Hitching is a very effective style of fishing on the Hrutafjardara, a method considered by many as the most entertaining form of salmon fishing. Hruta’s comfortable lodge is close is situated adjacent to the lower pools.


In the northern part of Iceland runs one of the finest salmon rivers you will find, the Miðfjarðará. A 115 km long river system that is based on 4 rivers. The main river the Miðfjarðará, the Austurá, the Vesturá and the small Núpsá.
There are over 220 named pools on the whole system and we only fish with 6 – 10 rods depending on the time of the season.
