I and my adult son are experienced fishermen, but were first timers in Iceland. We passed our wish list for a one week fishing trip to Kristinn Ingolfsson at Anglers.is. He put together an exciting fishing trip all included: fishing permits, accommodation, exact maps, excellent briefing, very competent guide for the first day, etc. We got what we wanted and much more, including plenty of fish and excitement. Truly professional and caring customer experience!
