The Icelandic Fly Fishing Academy

Fish Partner has founded the Icelandic Fly Fishing Academy. The Academy is an education center focused on passing on knowledge and new skills to fly fishing and outdoor enthusiast. Another aim of the Academy is to increase new recruitment into the sport, especially among children, young people, and minority groups in the sport. The Academy is Fish Partner's answer to the lack of educational resources and social events in the sport of fly fishing and the greater outdoors community here in Iceland.

The core of the Academy's work is in the form of courses and lectures series. There is already a full course program set for this winter - with many more on the horizon.

Among the courses already on the program are:

  • - Beginners fly casting courses with all FFI certified instructors. 
  • - Beginners fly tying courses.
  • - Photography course with world-renowned photographer and angler Matt Harris.
  • - Rod building courses.
  • - Dry fly tying courses with noted tiers Miroslaw Senderski and Michał Zapał.
  • - Lecture course with big fish expert Niels Folmer Jorgensen.
  • - Open house casting practices.
