Our new and very last group this season on the Umba have arrived. In spite of the long journey and only with some few hours rest, all 10 rods are, as these lines are written, chasing the big legendary Umba Salmon (More to come)

Week 40
The final result for last week turned out to be fantastic! Despite the river have continued to rise caused be heavy rain during the last weeks. Reports tell that rivers like Ponoi and Varzuga are 1 – 2 meters up and that the fishing is impossible out there.
Happily for us at the wonderful Umba, we have the big lakes in the backcountry that works like a buffer and filter, so our fishing are never effected hard by rain and early dirty spring water.
