In August just two days before I was heading for my Umba fall season, I came up with a new Umba fly in honour of late Nick Podolsky – Our Umba camp manager and dear friend during many years

During six weeks I was only fishing with The Podolsky fly and the fly proved its worth, with 45 salmon in total.

Biggest Salmon was 3 x 15Lb. 2 x 17Lb. 1 x 18Lb. 3 x 20Lb. 1 x 22 Lb and 1 x 25Lb.
