The Frozen North:

Iceland 2009 006

Perhaps best known for its prehistoric landscape of volcanoes and geysers, Iceland is home to a family of salmonids that thrive in frigid waters.  Naturally, salmon head the bill, but late June is the height of summer here and given 24 hours of daylight sufficient warmth drives enough flylife to get the trout going.  A small group of us (Team Fly Odyssey) headed north to the fringes of the Arctic Circle and with settled weather forecast things look a lot more promising than they do back home just now.



~Sheep might well be a feature of the Icelandic landscape, but the rivers here are packed with hefty inhabitants like this beauty from my last visit~
