All gear that will come in contact with the Icelandic rivers or lakes will need to be disinfected before or upon arrival to Iceland. There is a disinfecting service in Reykjavík (KEF) airport but this requires you to unpack your fishing stuff when going through customs,therefore we strongly recommend you having it done before departure from home by a veterinarian and then you will have plenty of time to let them dry out after the disinfection. Remember that most of the equipment needs to be sealed and you need to carry a certificate proving you have disinfected your gear.
Help us keep our river unspoiled and clean.
We do not recommend bringing used flies with you as the materials used for the disinfection will cause the hooks to rust.
Ether tie you own flies before arrival and use them the first time or buy the most popular Icelandic patterns when you have arrived.
