Rynda Fishing Week 31 – 2012

Posted on 13/08/2012

Summer time in the arctic moves at a fantastic pace. We have had a couple of small groups of good friends with us lately on the Kharlovka camp. The fishing has been so enjoyable that we have been using our fly rods – videos and cameras much more than our laptops and phones! The Northern Rivers and ASR staff are now resting for the next two weeks. In the meantime, please have a peek at our new Rynda Salmon teaser. All the best!...

Rynda Fishing Week 30 – 2012

Guest Report by Jonathan Chippindale The MI-8 flight from Murmansk to the Rynda is always a reflective time for me. The stress of clearing immigration has been successfully negotiated, rods and baggage have also made it and are safely on-board, and now a weeks fishing lies ahead on the most beautiful, unspoiled and mesmeric river I know – a river that Duncan and I have been privileged to fish continuously between us for 23 years. In London, we’d heard reports of less snow...

Rynda Fishing Week 29 – 2012

Guest Report by Andrew J Dillon The fun started early for the two groups comprising the six rods on the Rynda this week. During the stopover in Helsinki the southern Irish father and son team (Mick and Billy Lynch) managed to track their fellow (as yet to be introduced) rods (David, Carl, Omer and Andrew) to a fine Finish restaurant and after brief introductions and a few glasses of the ‘oh be joyful’ the craic commenced and didn’t stop all week. All rods were new to the...

Rynda Fishing Week 28 – 2012

Guest Report by Sue and Tim 12 rods – aged recidivists and neophytes were slightly delayed leaving Murmansk airport but worries about missing the first evening fishing expressed by the novices were quickly dismissed by the returnees who assured them that, come what may, we would be welcomed, fed and out on the river that evening. So it proved, after a welcome steak all were deployed, and Matthew В. a novice salmon fisherman picked up a 22 pounds fish from Norway and thought...

Rynda Fishing Week 27 – 2012

Guest Report by Roger Harrison Time has moved on but no one has anything but praise for the new owner Vladimir Rybalchenko and very little has changed. [This is a new helicopter that is fast and more comfortable and the sauna is transformed]. But apart from these improvements the staff are just as welcoming and friendly and the guides as expert and helpful as ever. The reduction in the number of rods is a great improvement and for mainly British party was enhanced by a mix...

Rynda Fishing Week 26 – 2012

The Green Butt Brigade returns for the 12th year. Obviously, this is the first year without Peter, but it is still very much the Rynda we know, with all the smiles and familiar faces amongst the guides and camp staff. We are delighted to be back amongst friends! Arrived in bright, hot and cloudless weather with unusually low water conditions, more typical to later in the summer. However, despite the conditions Bruce kick started the week with a fantastic 27 pounder from...

Rynda Fishing Week 25 – 2012

This 3rd week of the fishing season turned out to be interesting and quite unusual. Together with the Rynda fishing guests, one of the best TV filming teams arrived to the camp. The team having several Emmy, BAFTA and RTS awards for documentary films now focused on the Rynda River, its history, beauty and fishing legends. The Kola Peninsula seemed to be waiting for the strangers to come and showed up in fogs, storms and fortunately good salmon fishing. Photo: TV crew with 2...

Rynda Fishing Week 24 – 2012

It would be an understatement to say that the veterans amongst the team of anglers that arrived at Rynda camp this week were suitably astonished to see quite how far progressed the season was in terms of fishing conditions, water levels and the growth in the tundra. Any thoughts of heavy sinking lines and large tubes were dismissed without further consideration. By weeks end the bleached winter colours of the tundra had been replaced by vivid green’s with the birch bush...

Rynda Fishing Week 23 – 2012

For those used to early season fishing on the Rynda, arriving in camp for the first full week of the 2012 season, they could be forgiven for thinking that they’d mysteriously missed a month in the calendar and were fishing an early July week. In lieu of the normal snow on the banks of many pools and a week of fast sinking tips, 2012 has seen the full opening of camp take place with leaves already on the birch trees, the majority of fishing on floating lines and fish already...
