Varma river – Thorleifslaekur is an extremely unique river. It is small, delicate and only a half hours drive from Reykjavík. Despite its appearence it is one of the island’s most prolific sea trout rivers and offers anglers a variety of fish types, ranging from the dominating sea trout to the odd salmon, to stationary brown trout, to a small recently injected flatfish, to a stock of huge non migratory char, to migratory char and finally to a local type of steelhead! One angler even caught the lot in a single day and had an eal thrown in for good measure before the day was over!
