The Wrong River
Paul Young travels north in this episode of Hooked to go fly fishing for big Icelandic Salmon and Brown Trout. The geysers and volcanos serve as a dramatic backdrop to some of the best game fishing in the world, making Iceland a true angler’s paradise. Paul begins fishing for aggressive Brown Trout in the shallow backwater streams of southern Iceland, encountering specimens most only dream of. The show then visits the River Ranga, where stocking programmes have created an immense run of Atlantic Salmon. Fishing the fly through waterfall plunge pools, Paul tries catching the large hen fish necessary to birth the next generation of Ranga Salmon. This episode is an insight to everything that gives Iceland its reputation as a mecca of fly fishing.
