Iceland has the world’s happiest people, a hot tub in every town, and “WIND, WIND and fucking wind,” says Swiss angler/filmmaker Luc Malbois. In The Land of Endless Days Malbois and Romain Mettaz spend 10 days sight-fishing the country’s lakes and rivers for Arctic char and prehistoric-looking browns. “The first day the Varma was really low. The second day, too much wind on the lake Heidarvatn. After this two nice days we went on the famous Laxa. It was really low and there was not a lot of trout… We finish with two days for the biiiiiiig ice age browns.”
