why you shouldn’t miss this
There are many activities to try in Reykjavik, but fishing is definitely one that you should try especially if you are a fan of seafood. These seas usually offer a good chance of catching a couple of kinds of fish – the Atlantic wolfish, the Haddock, the rockfish, the pollock, and the Atlantic Cod. While the Haddock is a smaller fish, the other two can get quite big, giving most people an interesting challenge if they are looking for one. Imagine taking a photograph holding a huge 2m long Atlantic cod? The best part is the rules in Reykjavik allow you to keep whatever you catch, meaning you can cook it later.
Once you board the vessel, you will first be given safety instructions and be asked to wear protective floatation outerwear. Once everyone has followed the safety precautions, you will be taken to the appropriate fishing spots. The veteran fishermen accompanying you will quickly judge the viability of each spot. Once a good spot is found, the crew and the fishermen will instruct you on how to use a fishing rod along with anything else you might need to know. Once you learn how to use the fishing rod and to bait fish, you can move on to trying to catch one. IF you get lucky and succeed, the crew will be more than willing to take your catch and barbecue it for you.
