Rynda week 27 ending 1st of July 2016

As fisherman and nature lovers we are always up to the elements, elements such as rain wind snow and sun. Not only does we get affected by it but so does the fish, the river and the countryside.

Air temperature pushing high 20’s and water temperature raising daily, and so the water level also dropping at an alarming rate. As Salmon fishermen we are prepared to spend hours at end just...

In addition, river temps went from a balmy 10C back down to a more...

Back row from the left: Bård, Karsten, Kurt, Ole, Monrad, Andre. Front row from the left: Rune, Gena. After having visited the arctic tundra for 12 years my favorite period of time has become mid to late august. Catches are always good, the weather normally very stable and water levels perfect.

First Knee, Running Our week started in the usual fashion; with the flight to Kirkenes, after which a minibus took us the rest of the way to Murmansk where we stayed the night, as is custom to these trips. We were happily surprised to learn that the last leg of our journey to Rynda camp from the airport in Murmansk was to be by helicopter and not by minibus. The weather forecast for our week was not at all promising – just as dreary as it had been all summer, so we were...
