Normally when I think of a big, dirty, flooded river I think of Dumfries and Galloway’s finest: the River Nith after the equinoxial gales in October. But you can get spring floods too, and on the Varzuga.
Here’s my latest from Fish and Fly. Enjoy, although that’s not quite the right word.
Just remember, however, that difficult is a relative term. After all 70 salmon in a day (by 8 rods fishing Middle Varzuga on Tuesday) is pretty good going. Even when on Wednesday their total fell to 25, well 3 fish a rod for a day’s fishing is great sport by any standards.
Just not by the Varzuga’s.
