Friday Photograph


A before-breakfast salmon, a small contribution to the 8,500 caught in the short but record-breaking six-week Varzuga season just ended. I took very few fish photographs this time but just quickly snapped this fella, which took a Ronald Sutherland silver Conehead in black, green and (crucially for the Varzuga), orange in the lower home pool, Greenbank. Sadly I cracked the fly off on just about the next cast so wound in the slack line and made my way to the lodge for one of Marieke’s superb bacon breakfasts in the Sabacchi lodge.

I am also blogging throughout this summer fishing season on Fish and Fly  … come and have a look at what we’re doing on our rapidly expanding international salmon and destination fishing portal!
