Keith Rose-Innes looks back at a record-breaking season and reports that a total of 15,415 fish were caught and released in 30 weeks.
Throughout this series, I have tried to bring a glimpse of what is going on at the frontier of fly fishing for trout & grayling, though have not really explored other developments, such as fly fishing for other species and, notably, salt water. I do very little of the latter and there are far more experienced fly fishers in these areas to broadcast what is going on.
Last week saw the Atlantic Salmon Reserve Youth Programme at the Kharlovka Camp...Katya reports back on how the lads fared...
The weather has been somewhat inclement but the fishing has been excellent – Keith rose-Innes reports back from another week in paradise.
Martin Salter has just returned from an important mission to tick a few more items off that fisherman's bucket list: A GT on the fly from Alphonse Island in the Seychelles.
I just got back from my first long-awaited trip to Cuba to sample the flats fishing in the Jardines de la Reina region, leading a group of UK anglers in conjunction with the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust (BTT).
A spectacular “Golden Grand Slam” has been achieved whilst fishing St Francois atoll. 4th season Alphonse guide, Andrew Mayo guided Matvey (Mat) Ivanov to obtaining this coveted achievement! To qualify for a “Golden Grand Slam” title five species of fish: Permit, Milkfish, GT, Bonefish and a Triggerfish need to be caught on the same day.
This week Alphonse Island was covered by a depression bringing overcast conditions, strong winds and heavy rain – but there were still some very special fish caught!
The Lakselva river in Norway is now one of the most reliable rivers in the world when it comes to producing salmon of over 40lbs. We have been fishing the river over the past six seasons and in almost every week we have been there, one or more of our guests has landed a fish of over 40lbs.
Frontiers report from the Ponoi as the end of the season is in sight.
