The Langá-river á Mýrum, as it is known is 36 km long with 93 named pools. Located in the same area as Norðurá-river it is a typical Icelandic salmon river offering technical fishing with small flies – and boasts outstanding beauty. This river has been fished by the British since the early 1900’s, and has had a huge amount of work done to it, in terms of fish ladders and other devices to improve its course for salmon to run. The Langá-river fishes 12 rods in July and August and is best tackled with a single handed rod. In true Icelandic style, small hitched flies such as mini Sunray Shadows, Langa Fancy and Arndilly Fancy are the most popular. As the Langá-river originates in Lake Langavatn it always has a dependable flow of water and is one of the few Icelandic rivers that is truly consistent in a dry summer. The Langá-river remains one of the most naturally productive rivers in Iceland.
