I just had this message come in from Steffen Juhl in the Umba Lodge. The weather has changed in Umba, i.e. real autumn weather with water temperature at 10 degrees Celsius, sun yesterday, but today the weather is cloudy, just how we like it! Lawrie Hickman from Guideline UK got a fantastic fresh Umba whopper in Lower Rat Pool. A very big cheer and welcome to the 2o lbs. Club. That’s the biggest fish so far. Peter Newbald got a beautiful Umba salmon from Brad’s Pool and later landed an eight pounder. Also a very big welcome to the 20 lbs. Club. Flavio Fusaro from Italy landed a 22 pounder today: a magnificent fresh fish from Doctor’s Pool straight from the sea. Another very big welcome to the 20 lbs. Club. The biggest this week are: 10-14 lbs: 4; 15-19 lbs.: 5; 20-26 lbs.: 3.
Flies: Cascade and Willie Gun dominating. Floating line with sink tip or intermediate tip. Kola veteran Bernard Lunel and Carlo Sala have just checked in, both with 18 pound salmon from Long Pool and Rat Pool – well done! More to come from junky world!
