20 Lbs Club red hat party, summarizes this week, this despite the warm weather with sun from morning to evening and temperatures around +20c, which is quite unusual this time of year. All rods have produced BIG fish so a great week for all our guests. Umba veteran of them all, Illtyd Griffiths – from Wales – landed 4 over 20 Lbs – and lost a big one – on his own very special Boyo fly.
Umba veteran Jamie Tabor – from UK – landed the biggest fish of the week = a beautiful 24 Lbs Chromer. Benjamin Domange – from France – caught 2 x 20 Lbs – and lost 2 same seize and both salmon emptied his reel in just matter of seconds. This weeks highlight came from Benjamin Domange 83 year old father who caught 22 Lbs Whopper in Doc Pool, well done:) Biggest Salmon this week; 16 between 10-14 Lbs, 8 between 15-19 Lbs and 11 between 20-24 Lbs. Every night was big party night welcoming all new – and older members – to the 20 Lbs Club.
Most productive flies this week: Red Butt, Green Highlander, Boye, Silver Doc and Podolsky fly. Water temperature 13c and new team have arrived and if we could get the water temperature down to 10c then this would produce even bigger numbers, fingers crossed.
All the best,
