2018 ASR Salmon Season Summary

The 2018 has been fascinating with weeks that reminded us both of how special these remarkable rivers can be, but also of how finely balanced nature can be, when the heatwave that swept Europe also visited the Arctic tundra in July. In addition, the vagaries of our unique location also meant that we were briefly but once more reminded that the remote and controlled zone in which our rivers flow has the occasional frustration to go hand in hand with the many advantages that...

Three rivers report for week 35/36/37 ending 14h of September 2018

Whilst saddened and frustrated to have disappointed old friends in this way, a small number of old Russian friends were still most welcomed as always. It also offered us an unexpected...

While the rivers remained at record low levels, thankfully everything cooled back down just before the young lads arrived who were blessed with mild conditions for the week with...
