Evening Rise:


Like the UK, any daytime breeze usually dies away towards evening time in Iceland.  Of course, with 24 hours daylight you still have good visibility come midnight (a surreal sensation) which is when hatches can peak.  Then it’s a race against time as believe me these midge feeders take some landing.  The difficult part is to stay calm and refrain from attempting to horse fish in otherwise disaster strikes.  Of course you do lose a few, which is to be expected at the extreme end of fly fishing!


~The wait was worth it as this leaper latched onto my midge pattern~
