Steffen just called me very exited, +60 fish so far on 7 rods only, uhhhh Viva Grand Varzuga, seems like the first wagon of the BIG Varzuga train has landed for the very first group. All pools below camp are producing fish and many big ones have been caught between 12-14 Lbs, biggest so far 16 Lbs, caught by David Wood from US. Pools above camp have also made contact and getting better day by day, focus is still however on the lower pools.
Waterlevel is dropping and water temp about 12C, perfect conditions and fish just pouring in the pools, continuously. Floating line with sink tip fished fast is the right medicine right now and flies in yellow/orange color range (Cascade etc) are fishing extremely well.
Next 2 weeks looks extremely well, what a start of the season…Viva Grand Varzuga:)
Stay tuned for more reports…
