Kharlovka week 30 ending 28th of July 2017

Posted on 02/08/2017

Despite the sudden change of weather with cool winds from the north producing foggy conditions that delayed weekend transfers by several hours – last weeks group of 14 guests (Hosted by Roddy Hall the manager for Farlows Travel) – went on to have an exciting week releasing a total of 195 salmon before the big celebration on the Friday evening.

Up – Up and Away!
Following the record winter snowpack and spring thaw – the summer season has now caught up. Last week the conditions came just right providing a natural wonder as guests sat in silence eating their lunches – starring in awe at the mighty Kharlovka Falls as large salmon leaped some 3 meters – disappearing into the wild undisturbed spawning zones of the upper river..

Always a pleasure to see Richard and his South African friend Andrew back again on the ASR.

And since the good veteran doctors David and Sean (and a couple others) who too busy fishing to worry about taking photos of all their fish – we would like to add a bit about one memorable day David had on the Rynda the previous week when we had the camera ready..

The Champion!
Congratulations to the ASR Veteran – Dr. David for releasing this solid 27 lber on the top of the Rynda at Swan Lake!
Dr. David was presented with his Rynda Big Fish ring upon returning to camp.

Внезапно изменилась погода: подул холодный северный ветер и опустился туман, который помешал своевременному отъезду гостей. Тем не менее, новая группа из 14 гостей с хостом в лице Родди Холла, менеджера Farlows Travel, здорово провели время, поймав и отпустив 195 лососей за неделю.
