In a tiny fishing village in Iceland, two boats are ready to take you and young Fridrik fishing. Grandfather Fridrik fishes with hooks for cod. Grandfather Haddi fishes with nets for lumpfish, a very ugly fish.
Young Fridrik lives in the land of fish. There are fish on the money and fish on the stamps. The leading export is fish. Though one grandfather is a doctor and the other a school custodian, in the summer they are fishermen too. This summer they are passing on their Icelandic traditions to their grandson.
You are welcome to join young Fridrik in the city of Reykjav k to begin your Icelandic fishing adventure--but don’t forget your hat.
