Kris and Birkir were great guides. They spent plenty of time helping my kids learn to fly fish. They were very friendly and knowledgeable. We caught many Arctic Char and they are maybe the best eating fish I have ever had.

We let them know we would like both spinners and fly rods available which they happily provided - along with instruction on both for those of us who needed it. Just discuss it by email and they will make it happen. Enjoy!
