Grand Varzuga 2015

Join us to rewarding and famous Varzuga River – one of the most prolific and exciting salmon rivers in the world. 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 for only 10 rods weekly

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 kilometres of fast runs and awesome fly water. The biggest Varzuga salmon are actually ‘designed’ to reach this part of the river, and each season we land several salmon up to Twenty pounds (Scaled and registered)

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.

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.
