After a long wait and in retrospect unfounded nervousness, I began on 7 June this year my journey to Russia, in order to fish Salmon Junkies program on Grand Varzuga!
The arrival was organized very well and above all without any problems at all. We reached Grand Varzuga camp late in the afternoon after a relaxing and specular helicopter flight.
In the camp Steffen and his Top team gave us a very friendly WELCOME – A memorable Fishing weeks was about to start. Already on the first evening the 10 rods group caught 30 Salmon during a small four hours session. By the end of the week my friend Markus Kemmer caught 55 Salmon and 47 salmon for my own rod. More than 50% of the fish was between 10 Lb to 17 Lb
My very good friend from Scotland, World record Spey caster Scott Mackenzie asked me to fish his brand new DTX Mackenzie atlas 13″7 Spey rod. Not only I was thrilled by this rod but also several other guys in the camp was amazed by this marvelous Spey rod – Thanks to Scott and Steffen for making my week so complete and memorable. I´ll be back soon!!!
