Fish Partner Guided Trip in Iceland!
Highlands Rivers, Kaldakvísl and Tungnaá
Three days of guided fishing, lodging and all meals for two at the private Fish Partner Highlands Lodge! The Highlands are truly the heart of Iceland with uncanny beauty and epic scenery, offering an experience unlike any other. Here you can truly become one with nature as the Highlands are untouched and uninhabited by man. The vast wilderness – mountains, deserts, canyons, lakes and rivers – demonstrate the powerful forces of fire and ice which over centuries have shaped the landscape of this volcanic island. Amidst all of this beauty, there is the trout and the arctic char – peacefully cruising the gin-clear streams since the Ice age. The experience cannot be put into words – it has to be lived.
Anglers will fish both river Kaldakvísl and river Tungnaá. The river Kaldakvísl is truly a hidden gem. Fished only by a select few, Kaldakvísl has now been made exclusively available only to the customers of Fish Partner. Diversity and contrasts are the river’s main characteristics. On the 12 km (16 mile) beat, one can find beautiful waterfalls, great canyons, fast water, slow water, rocks, sand and so much more. The river is full of arctic char, their size averaging at 3-4 lbs, although char weighing up to 7 lbs can be found there, as can big brown trout.
River Tungnaá is gin-clear spring water flowing into beautiful micro canyons area along with traditional fast and slow running pools, filled with big Arctic char. This smallish, south Iceland Highland trout stream is probably one of the best-kept trout secrets in global angling. It is a technical river where stealth, among other attributes, is needed. The quarry is native brown trout and monster chars. They are on average 2-5 pounds, with the monsters ranging to 10 pounds.
This trip offers a unique opportunity to get to know the Icelandic Highlands and to do some world-class Arctic Char and Brown Trout fishing in one trip. In the evenings, after having enjoyed the outstanding cuisine at our Highland Fishing Lodge, you can either relax in the lodge, fish the creeks right outside the lodge, or take a sightseeing trip to the numerous waterfalls, canyons, and glaciers in the Highlands and of course take an unforgettable thermal swim in the hot spring stream in Landmannalaugar.

Douglas Upstream PLUS Series > View Models
The Upstream PLUS is a special rod. It’s just the right size, with just the right flex. If you need to protect light tippets, if you’re casting the whole line or short distances, if you’re fishing to spooky trout where delicacy is required, if you need precise cast between 20 and 70 feet, these rods can get it all done. The Upstream PLUS rods are a casters dream.
Douglas Upstream Series > View Models
The Upstream lineup from Douglas Outdoors brings eight unique, ultra-lite fly rods to the game. Each rod is designed to have a minimum, but high function approach to bush and upcountry fishing environments. The challenge of both close casting and designing a rod that will control your line, fly and catch with authority, is a balance that Upstream strikes with ease.
XL — Line: 6/7 WF6+175 | Capacity – Weight: WF7+150 – 4.7 oz | Diameter: 4″
XL MAX — Line: 8/9 WF8+175 | Capacity – Weight: WF9+150 – 4.7 oz | Diameter: 4″
The Nautilus X-Series is an open-frame reel designed for lightness, strength, drag smoothness, and fast line pick up. The X-Series design has strong beams that extend from the center to a wide line guard. These angles allow for rear spool rim protection where the reel typically contacts the ground when the rod is leaned up against a wall or a car.
The totally new SCF-X drag is a sealed Teflon® and carbon fiber disc drag system. It is adjusted with a generous drag knob that offers superior gripping surface and texture for wet and cold fingers.
DESIGNED FOR LIGHTNESS, STRENGTH, SMOOTHNESS & SPEED
The highly ventilated arch design, coupled with the dual palming rim increases spool strength by 35 %. The sides of the frame leave the spool totally exposed, and the back spool rim has a generous 1/8″ secondary palming rim for added fish control. This heavy- duty secondary palming rim has the strength to withstand everyday wear and tear.
The spool is a new spin on our ultra light, award winning Giga arbor design. It is lighter than any spool of a similar size we have ever made.
Available in three frame sizes:
