One rod came up at Grand Varzuga 8 – 15 June – Grab this chance and secure a outstanding week i Salmon Heaven.  Varzuga river is one of the most famous Atlantic Salmon rivers in the world, and is well known for its “unrealistic” fishing. The Varzuga salmon are extremely aggressive and pulls like a train – a really blast on light spey and switch rods. The long broad runs and tailouts of our Grand Varzuga beat make it a great place to swing flies. This is dry line line Salmon fishing at its best. 

Salmon Junkies has an exclusive long-term lease on more than 30 km of the most attractive and enjoyable salmon fishing on the Kola Peninsula.  This charming section of river gives access to the most prestigious and remote part of Varzuga, from the Yzia tributary down to the junction with Pana River = 30 Km of fast rapids sections and kilometres of prime fly water

The Grand Varzuga camp accommodates up to 10 guests in single rooms over five cabins.  There is a central shower and washing block, plus a cosy centrally placed dinning house with a veranda overlooking the river.

Grand Varzuga is located about 15 km upstream of the Pana tributary.  Here the river is medium sized at 30 to 65 metres wide with numerous fast runs and rocky sections, which provide awesome holding spots. The biggest Varzuga salmon are actually ‘designed’ to reach this part of the river (In 2013 we landed/scaled 9 x 20Lb salmon during  May and June).

The Grand Varzuga beat is so remote you will feel you have finally come to ‘salmon heaven’!  Close to the camp there is plenty of good fly fishing water.  Not all of the pools have been discovered yet, so you may even find get a pool named after you!

Join Salmon Junkies on our new Varzuga program and you could learn more about Atlantic salmon fishing in one week than you will in a lifetime of fishing Norwegian or Scottish rivers. Average catch per rod 23 – 27 Salmon per rod
