Minnesota Couple Dies on Fly Fishing trip in Iceland

Janet Veit and her husband Brian Schumacher, of La Crescent, Minnesota, were on a fly fishing trip in Iceland when they tragically died. The couple accidentally fell into the cold, fast-moving river that feeds Lake Pingvallavatn, Iceland’s largest lake. The two were accomplished fly fishers and had traveled all over the United States to fly fish. Both Janet and Brian were part-time fly fishing guides and also taught wounded veterans how to fly fish. The couple had affected so many people in a positive manner through their love of fly fishing. Their death is truly awful and reminds us to cherish every second on the water but to always be careful. 556877180_750x422.jpgFor more information on this tragedy, check out the account of the tragedy by Iceland Magazine.
