The River Kjarra operates the 'Afternoon to Noon' fishing policy and the fishing is normally organised on a three-day basis, commencing in mid-afternoon on the first day purchased and ending at noon on the final day (the day after the last day purchased).
Fishing is permitted for a period of 12 hours per day, usually from 7am to 1pm and from 4pm to 10pm, with a quality lunch break in between. The maximum number of rods allowed to fish the river at any one time are seven. Rod sharing is permitted, though limited to a maximum of two persons per rod.
There is a bag limit of five fish per day for each rod but after that you may catch and release. Catch and release is becoming more popular, and especially for 2-year-old fish and all salmon longer than 70cm (28") should be released for conservation reasons.
Rods: Single-handed rods (minimum length of 9ft) and/or double-handed rods (12-15ft).
Flies/tubes: A wide variety of flies in size 8-16 (both double and treble hooks allowed). Tubes can be from micro size up to 2 or hitch tubes.
Lines: Floating and/or sink tip - depending on prevailing conditions.
Waders: Chest waders recommended but hip boots may be adequate.
Clothing: Warm and waterproof preferably in the customary muted colours.
Please note that Iceland is located close to the Arctic Circle and temperatures can vary significantly.
Ghillie and outfitter's names, emails and telephone numbers will be included in the joining instructions that are immediately sent by e-mail after the purchasing of the fishing permits.
