Although things started off a bit slow with only 4 salmon recorded in the book on the first day, everything quickly came just right for this returning group of good friends who went on to enjoy some fantastic fishing that won’t soon be forgotten.

The conditions were almost perfect with the rivers slowly dropping away about 4cm/day finishing off the week with a good level of 45cm on the home pool scale – along with rising water temps that topped out at 16C. The best flies last week by a long way were Golden Killers and Willie Gunns on floating lines.

Honourable mention goes to Andrey who managed to catch his first 9 salmon ever – and also to the 9 other guests who went on to break their personal bests last week!

Congrats to the whole team who after surviving one of the hottest and sunniest weeks last year – were back again for what would turn out to be one of the best weeks of the season.

We are looking forward to see this group again next year for round III.

All the best
Team Kharlovka
