I want to thank all of you most sincerely for a wonderful week’s fishing on the Umba, you made it all so easy for me to have the wonderful opportunity to fish the glorious Umba.
Every part of the trip was absolutely first class. On the drive from Murmansk to the lodge and back again the drivers were excellent, very careful and taking no chances. The Lodge itself surpasses much more expensive one’s I have used in America, the cuisine was excellent, if a little strange at times. The guide’ Igor is probably the best guide / ghillie I have ever had the pleasure of fishing with. He is so courteous and helpful at all times and nothing you ask of him is any problem. The river itself is what most people would dream of when considering Atlantic salmon fishing, it is just so perfect.
I want to thank Anne Mette for being so professional in arranging the trip (Steffen did his little bit too ). Kare for all his invaluable advice and last but not least the C.E.O. Steffen for putting up with me. You guy’s deserve to do very well together as a team. I think that I would make Anne Mette the C.E.O. and make Steffen number two fishing guide:)
Jim has already being in contact with you about next year so I will not comment on that except to say that it will not come quick enough.
