Blanda 4

Blanda 4 is the newest beat on the Blanda to be under Lax-á management. Beat 4 in Blanda is an entirely different river from the other beats. This is a small, clear single hand river. It is actually not the Blanda river proper. Rather it´s a small tributary located about 25 miles (40 km) from the sea. Blanda Beat 4 is the best kept salmon secret in Iceland. It´s beautiful little, gin clear river. You can see the salmon in most places. Use small flies, hitch tubes and floating lines on this beat:  It´s a riffling hitch paradise.

Total of 3 rods fish the beat. Prime time is July until mid August. Great place for taking the whole beat with friends for few days.
