smallVarzuga juni 2012 125

A warm bright morning, turning to heavy rain this afternoon, topped off by a chilly evening and brilliant sunset. The river was a touch up today and is now at 4⁰C and still raising.
Thankfully the flood only reached just over the level of the floors in the main lodge and cabins at Lower Varzuga Lodge, so no serious damage done and things are drying out well. The ice bergs parked themselves on the edge of the Island opposite the Varzuga Village, but luckily not in main camp, but leaving some very impressive ice walls in places
Two cracking Chromers from Heli Pool caught test fishing on fast sinking tip and large bright fly yesterday.
No Arctic Terns yet, they are due any day to feast on the smolt run having completed their annual 17,000 km round trip to Antarctica.
