Iceland: Fisherwoman

Murphy has traveled to Iceland with a Tenkara fly rod. Along our chosen route from Reykir back to Reykjavik, a particular stretch of water looks particularly inviting (drizzle and all), so we clamber down to check it out.

Tenkara, if you're not familiar, is a simpler approach to fly fishing. With a massively-telescoping rod and no reel, it's very travel-friendly and also represents a much lower barrier to entry.

Certainly the wrong fly

Horrible setting

No fish were harmed (or disturbed) in the making of this post.
