FLY FISHING – ICELAND, SOG
Fly fishing for salmon on Sog River in Iceland. Fishmaster will arrange fly fishing trips to the Sog Asgardur Beat. Sog is a beautiful river located in southern Iceland 80 km South-East from Reykjavik.
The Sog is one of the most attractive salmon rivers in Iceland. It‘s a large size river that originates in the southern highlands and joins the mighty Hvíta. It winds it‘s way down to the lowlands through spectacular landscape and opens up on the lower pools, with breathtaking scenery wherever you look. The salmon makes it‘s way up through the vast Hvita/Ölfusa river system, the largest river system in Iceland, before reaching Sog. The natural surroundings are spectacular, ensuring the variety of pools fished are great. You will find calm pools as well as fast flowing ones. Access is very good and most pools are accessible by regular sedans or smaller 4×4 vehicles. Sog Asgardur beat’s average catch for the last years is 200-300 salmon per season.
The Sog River Asgardur beat is 5,6 km long and consists of the North/Left bank of the river. We have 3 rods of the West bank. Daily fishing hours in September are from 7.00 until 13.00 and again from 15.00 to 21.00 or from 16-22. The fishing season is from June 24th until the 24th September. All caught salmon must be released and only fly fishing is allowed.
Good flies for the Sog River are for example Blue & Black, Black Sheep, Silver Sheep, Frances, Snaelda, Blue Charm, Sunray Shadow and Willie Gunn.
