You will find detailed pre-trip information in a pdf publication on the Hofsá and the Selá pages on this website. Information such as:
- International and domestic travel
- River information, beats and rotation
- Recommended tackle and flies
- Catch and release rules

Before travelling to Iceland every angler travelling with his own gear needs to have his equipment sterilised before entering the country.
This must be done by a certified vet that must provide you with a signed inventory list of what has been sterilised. This list must then be shown upon arrival in Keflavik. Main equipment that must be sterilised:
- Wading boots
We recommend that you hire a professional guide to maximise your fly fishing experience. Strengur Angling Club has a team of great guides.
Tackle and flies
You can fish most of the pools on our rivers with a 7 or 8 weight single handed rod, 9 1/2 to 10 ft. We do however strongly recommend that you bring a 7, 8 or 9 weight double handed rod as well.
You should come prepared on your trip and we suggest you shop flies in Iceland for a good fly selection for your trip. Further information on flies can be found in our pre-trip documents on the Hofsá and Selá pages.
Under almost all conditions we fish with floating lines on our rivers. For extreme conditions you should however bring a sinking line or a sinking tip to use if needed.
