just returned from a week at the Upper Varzuga Camp.
I had an amzing trip with lots of fish at one of the nicest flywaters one can imagine.
Basically there is something like 30km river exclusively for the camp, so there is so much water to fish...
River: The waters of the Upper Varzuga Camp can be devided into a lower section and an upper section. In the lower section the river widens and runs into classic runs, than windens and so on. The upper section is just one big stretch of flywater (actually you have to see it, to believe it). The river flows down in a kind of steps creating one pool after the other. I actually never saw all of it...you can walk upriver and it goes on and on and on...
Camp: The camp is quite nice with two single rooms in one hut with a nice veranda, power available from 6am to 12pm (generators).
For breakfast and dinner there is an extra hut. Lunch is taken at the river (where else;-)).
Fishing: After breakfast you leave lunch at 9:00 am for fishing and return at about 7:00 pm. As there is no night at this time of year you can go fishing after dinner...for the whole night. At least there is the possibillity to do so - on the other hand there is a big fridge with cold beer. Tough call!
Landscape: The Upper Vazuga is in the middle of the taiga, so if you like woods with a gorgeous river river flowing through it...you will like it. I thought it was just awesome. There are no roads - you don't just feel you are in the middle of nowhere, you actually are.
A moose on the other side of the river:
Fish: Lots of them. I caught 44 for the week although I did not fish too hard, skipping all but one fishing opportunities after dinner. What was surprising was the strength of the fish. Even a 10pd fish ran into the backing!
