Kharlovka Fishing Week 37 – 2013

Three Rivers report – final week of the season Continuing on with the successes of our previous weeks, we were pleased to welcome the last 13 rods of the season who travelled far and wide from the countries of Iceland, U.K., Denmark and Japan to arrive to test their skills against nature at its finest. Although we would normally have expected the high summer conditions to have given way long ago to the odd cold front or to some much anticipated autumn rains, this was...

Kharlovka Fishing Week 35 – 2013

The Preparation Phase It is simply impossible, when faced with the privilege of travelling to fish three of the world’s finest Atlantic Salmon rivers not to reach a degree of mental turmoil leading up to the event. To wives left behind this may be nothing more than a holiday but to the typical salmon angler this is probably the best chance of catching the ‘big one’. Anticipation, aspiration, expectation! All fishing trips are a combination of these three thought...

Trout Fishing Report Week 33A – 2013

Scones Kharlovka & Swan Isles Litza Our week was very good in every way. We caught totally 48 fish above 1 kilo with a lot between 1,8 and 2,5 kg. The biggest fish was about 2,8 and a very nice one. Igor was our “head chef” this week and made very nice food, told some very funny jokes and came with a lot of fishing tips regarding the camps. We knew that the water level was very low and the water temperature was quite high, but still we managed to catch a great deal of...

Kharlovka Fishing Week 32 – 2013

OK. On behalf of the whole Kharlovka team I am writing this short report on the first Three Rivers week and last week before the break. As even rivers need some rest. I must say that time really flies here.. It’s like an attraction, kaleidoscope of faces and emotions, you call it. Each week is unique and unforgettable. So, after the bunch of loud and merry youth, full of life and desire to fish no matter how good the party the previous night was, left, we were standing...

Trout Fishing Week 32 (Rynda) – 2013

Rynda Six eager trout anglers arrived at Ryndacamp and were flown to upper Rynda for a week of trout fishing. The condition was not at its best. Almost three months without rain is not optimal. The river was low, the water temperature around 20 degrees Celsius. The first night we experienced some rising, mainly on caddis hatching. Fish were caught, and every one was smiling. After some days fishing we found that the fish preferred standing in running water, and rising was...

Trout Fishing Week 32D – 2013

We started in Litza at Mystic and the water was very low and warm as expected. There were a few fish rising late in the evening, but no hatches.We managed to catch a few fish and almost all were taken between the rocks downstream of the camp. During daytime we watched large trout in the “aquarium” close to the camp. The fish was not rising and did not seem to eat at all during daytime. They were occupied by chasing each other around and it is always interesting to watch...

Trout Fishing Week 32A – 2013

Trophy Trout In front of this years trip to Russia and Kola we had heard a lot of rumors about “never seen this water level”, “the heat is on”, “sparse hatching” and so on. All this rumors made us prepare for the worst and hope for the best. We knew that we had to face difficult fishing conditions and that it could be tricky. But tricky doesn’t have to be negative. Tricky means that we had to think different from previous years. Less water means smaller flies. Our group was...

Kharlovka Fishing Week 31 – 2013

Youth springs eternal – Driven by wild expectations along with plenty of cola’s and chocolate bars, we were delighted to entertain 14 young international fly fishers that arrived from seven different nations last week to the Kharlovka camp to participate in the ASR youth programme. After enjoying several weeks of cool cloudy conditions, our last rowdy bunch unfortunately arrived to a heat wave. It all began without a cloud in the sky with daytime temperatures soaring...
