Salmon was caught in Junction Pool by Robert Ceuppens from Belgium, the fly was a local pattern by our guide Andreis.

Monday another pair of 20 Lbs. Salmon was caught by David Stocker from Texas and our faithful guest, Peter Kremsner from Austria. Both of these beauties was caught on a Red Butt in krivetz with the guide Igor.
