Photo above shows “The Bar” in front of the lodge right now – The stone Bar is still under water
Umba camp manager Igor Kryzhopolskiy mailed me yesterday a small report from Umba river. In spite of warm weather in the Tersky region (Southern part of Kola peninsula), we still have more water in the river than normal (This caused by the big flood we had this spring). This is indeed very good news for our upcoming autumn season that will start 16th August. Igor also reports that a good run of very big salmon entered the river end of June, and right now Igor are daily watching plenty of fresh summer salmon jumping in Home pool in front of our wonderful Umba lodge.
Grab a great opportunity to secured one of the last open rods we have available in 2014 – 16/8 – 23/8 August. For more info contact Steffen at firstname.lastname@example.org

It was really great to fish Grand Varzuga with you – please sent special regards to Umba manager Orla, and Grand Varzuga fishing guides Andreas and Mark.

I hope that you made it home safely Orla. We had a relaxing day in Kirkenes with
Mark, eating snacks and watching TV, memorizing our week at wonderful Umba. I have enclosed a Photo of one of my Umba salmon from this season. I would like
to thank you for being such an excellent camp manager and a nice person, it
was a pleasure to meet you at Umba. I will
send you some more photos, and I will send them separately like you requested. I
hope we will meet soon again.
Ps. Have enclosed photo showing my friend Mark Kumlin with a nice June whopper from Umba (see photo above).

Hi Steffen, Just like to say that I had a brilliant trip to. I did get some nice Chinook. Two biggest was 25 and one 30+, could not believe the strength of them. The accommodation was A1, Guides were outstanding and would like to thank everyone Jess, Pip, Dustin, Sky, Scotty & Chad for helping me out with tackle and clothing and Paul for making them lovely meals. You can let them know I got my case back on Monday, and tell them when I got to Dublin airport my rods were missing but got them back on Mon to.
Will be back again next year.
Speak to you soon
