Dry Flies

Because Iceland is a fairly young island the entomology here is quite different from other parts of Europe. For example May flies are very rare in Iceland so only a few imitations should be brought here for fishing. Midges and caddis are two of the most predominant species in Iceland so imitations of those should be brought in all life stages. Here is a list of selected dry flies handy to have while dry fly fishing in Iceland. Click on the photo to see the fly close up and the name of it.
