Icelandic - Atlantic Salmon

Was surfing around and looking up Icelandic atlantic salmon sites.
This looks like a new one.

See Angling section gives maps and excellent information on all trout, salmon, and char fishing in Iceland.

Looks like they are going to more fly fishing only, limiting the worm fisherman excessive killing, and have gone to smolt stocking to supplement the wild salmon reproductions which have had problems due to low river flows due to less snow and rain.

Interesting read.

Spent a year in Iceland in the USAF in 1967, I can only imagine what great atlantic fly fishing I missed out on, but I was basically 24x7 that year keeping the fighter inteceptors flying detering the russions from NATO air space.
