Charles Gaines writes eloquently about the precious opportunity to fly fish Iceland’s Laxá in Ásum River with his wife Greta. “One spring day in 895, Ingimundur went down to catch a salmon from his river and found a neighbor–named Hrolleifur–poaching from the opposite bank. Commanded to leave at once, Hrolleifur threw a spear across the river and well into Ingi, thus initiating his own speedy demise at the hands of Ingi’s sons.” In Forbes magazine.
