What can be fished


Langá in Mýrum is one of the best salmon rivers in Iceland and has numerous fans. It’s a varied river, with 93 listed fishing pools, and has its source in Langavatn, 36 km from the sea. The river is medium-size, all accessibility is exemplary and fishing there should suit most people. A lot of grilse usually migrate into the river, but the stock is known for having strong fish rather than big. It’s best to fish Langá with a single handed rod, a floating line and small flies, due to the fact that the fish lies normally in a shallow water. The take is often adventurous, and the salmon in Langá is sometimes a difficult match.
