Super fisher Paul Rouse has done it again with two very decent salmon of 14lb (pictured) and 11lb from the River Usk today. It couldn’t happen to a more deserving chap but I am a little sad that our planned trip there next weekend was blitzed by Paul’s taking up a second, preliminary week on the Kitza before fishing Middle Varzuga.
Two weeks in Russia. Two fish on the Usk. I’m delighted for Paul: congrats dear chap. Look out for Paul on the Varzuga blog. He wears a colourful hat which he’s promised to wear again. A bit.
