Kharlovka / Litza / Monteith / Fly Line

Just back from a cracking week up North of the Arctic Circle. Strange late year. Of the 197 fish we caught, all but tiny handful were fresh. Average size not as good as usual, but numbers right up there. Hot sunny weather which probably kept the big spring fish on the bottom.

These are definitely rivers that reward good spey casters. Regularly very windy, long casts often required and the ability to cast off both shoulders can make a real difference. Some imaginative casting also required off some of the rocks and cliffs.

Wanted to thank all those who recommended the Monteith Spey Line on this website. I have used it for 3 weeks fishing this year and am a complete convert. Flexible head system easy to use and the length of the head works really well for me. Not as brutal as a full shooting head set up, but also doesn't require so much line to be kept on the water as a long belly line......a good spey line compromise which you can really shoot line with. I achieved some amazing distances and it was very controllable. The running line is also heavy enough to mend the line properly. I'll still keep the heads for those rough windy early season days and Lee Wulff / Carron lines when I want to cast classically, but I can really see this being my primary big water line for some time to come.......interested on feedback from other users.
