Title: Salmon in Iceland
Author: Thor Gudjonsson
Author: Derek Mills
Document Type: Monograph
To the angler the word 'Iceland' conjures up the image of clear, fast-flowing rivers, full of bright salmon eager to take his lure. It is probably one of his main ambitions to fish the rivers of Ultima Thulea land of the midnight sun, wild mountainous landscapes and incredibly pure air. For many this ambition may never be achieved, for others more privileged it may be an annual event. This booklet has been written to tell those anglers whose ambition is still to be fulfilled something of the salmon scene in this distant country. It has also been produced to provide information for the salmon conservationist, manager and fish farmer in other countries who wish to know how Iceland looks after her salmon.
