North of The Wall 🇮🇸

The LOOP team fishing the opening days of the sea trout season on the Húseyjakvísl River in Iceland. We met up with Valli Ragnarsson to hear about his story and how he has used a joined up conservation approach to restore his home river back to it full potential. The management is extremely important to ensure that his children will also get to enjoy the charms of fishing for salmon and sea trout in their home rivers.

Through catch and release practice and working together with the farmers and anglers the Húseyjakvísl has seen a healthy restoration of their salmon and sea trout runs. Even in the early opening days of the season in the bitterly cold weather their are once again anglers enjoying many sea trout running back into the river.
