From early childhood, Björn Gunnarsson has had a huge passion for fly fishing. He has explored rivers and lakes all over Iceland and fished countless days and nights throughout the years. All that experience has made Björn the perfect guide for advanced and beginner fishermen alike.
With increasing fishing trip requests from friends – and friends of friends from abroad, Björn decided to put up this website to guide you to his favourite rivers in Iceland. He can assist you in obtaining fishing tickets. He has also obtained a fly casting instruction certification from the IFFF and gives frequent fly casting lessons here in Iceland.
Björn’s other profession is teaching the classical guitar, a trade that has helped make him the patient and precise guide he is! For organising things away from the river, Bjorn got his illustrator/designer wife Halla Sólveig Þorgeirsdóttir on board – making RiverNorth a family affair.
Our aim is to guide people to Björn’s favourite rivers here in Iceland. We strive to provide a positive and solid advise for our fellow fly-fishers.
