Pretty typical hotel breakfast, then a full day of fishing. Guesthouse Brekka did require breakfast reservations for COVID-19 contact tracing but that wasn't a big deal.
Caught some beautiful sunlight off the Laxa River, had a super, super, crazy productive spot in the morning for fly fishing off the shore-- Erik continued to catch the biggest fish of the trip! Icelandic fishers take long lunch breaks, so we headed up to Husavik for some superb seafood soup, and a quick stroll around perhaps the oldest settlement in Iceland. Husavik is also one of the major whale watching ports, although we obviously didn't have time to do that over lunch.Also stopped by the Turf House Museum (Grenjadarstadur Turf Farmhouse) to see how settlers lived, although much of the construction looked to be from later settlement periods. If you're tall like Erik, make sure not to bang your head!
The afternoon's fishing was much less productive, although both Daniel and Gilbert shared some excellent tips on fly fishing technique before we finished for the day. We made a just-before-dark stop at Godafoss, one of Iceland's biggest waterfalls, on the way to Akureyri. Even at dusk it was impressive. Then it was time for a late dinner at a place Daniel and Gilbert recommended, Centrum Kitchen and Bar. t'was better than average but again, not something to rave about. We actually met up with Daniel for a drink as well at Centrum, as our guides were actually based out of Akureyri (and apparently the Melins didn't talk him to death after two days!).
