Midfjardara, known in Iceland as “TheQueen of the Rivers” this stunning river with its gin clear water has over 200named pools, and with only six to ten rods that rotate over five beats it ishard not to feel that you have this cracking river to yourself.
The main river also has threetributaries, the Nupsa which is perfect for finding pots and pools, the Vestura and the Austura thatfeatures the famous canyon section which, although a hike, is well worth it asit is a beautiful part of the river. The joy of the Midfjardara is that thereis so much water to fish that even if one opts out of the canyon section on theAustura there are numerous different pools to fish.
The Midfjardara is perfect for those thatlike to use single or small double-handed rods with floating line and smallflies or hitch-tubes.
