This has been a fantastic week in many ways. 
Fishing with a very nice group of flyfishers, I've met some life-long friends during this week. We've had a great time together; fishing a lot, but also laughing a lot. A lot. Telling stories, and recapitulating todays happenings into the late hours. Every day. Having a good time in between all the fishing, is also a good part of a great flyfishing experience. That said: We caught 42 brown trouts passing 1 kilo. Many of them between 2.0-2.8 kg. Largest brown trout 3.1 kg. Of course, all wild fish. Fantastic in every sense. Fantastic.

 

 

Running Pool, Litza. Very low water level in week 29, as you can see, but the temperature seemed perfect, with 11-13 degrees Celsius in the water. The B.rhodani/E.aurivillii hatches (and even spinner falls) were probably finished when we arrived in week 29 though, which is unusual at this time of the year, and most of the fish seemed to have migrated into the deep pools. But the pockets and deep runs produced fantastic fishing even at the lowest water level. We worked hard. And got paid. (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

We worked hard and got paid. Are Wivestad managed 6 huge brown trouts one of the days.

 

 

Atle fished hard, and got some very nice ones during the week. (Photo: André Brun)

This is one of the browns he caught here. Not Jan's biggest fish, but one of the best photos. Jan caught several bigger. A very good flyfisher. (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

A large brown trout has been landed. God on you mate!

Andre is pushing the limits, and Sverre is ready to net the big brown! Rio FC+ 0,15mm works like hell :-) (Photo: Jan Haukaas.)

 

 

Beeing a pack of 2-3 flyfishers, and fishing one at a time, is very fun. 
It's not the most productive way of fishing, if you count fish by numbers. But so much fun :-)

His favourite stretch became "Svingen". And we all agree - that was a nice and difficult place for the big browns. And 'difficult' was a thing we all appreaciated. (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

Geir has chought his brown trout of a lifetime. Look at the height of this fish! Amazing.

Cheers, mate! Every morning, Jan and Atle started with a pre-breakfast Underberger :-) Why not - a good day ahead in the land of the big browns :-)

Igor is cooking some good meat for us. Planned gathering at 23.00 this night. And just about every night from now on.

 

 

Igor forced me to draw a Mayfly on every one of his big blue boxes. 
- Ok, I'll do that if you promise to join me next year, Igor :-)

Having a good time! I have travelled many places, first times here at the Kola Penninsula was in 1997 and 2001, but this is the best trip ever! And the best gang ever! :-)

 

 

 

As a hunter aswell, it was nice to see the abundance of grouse. 5-6 chickens is a mediocre+ spring result. Very nice to see. You see the yearling on top of the stone, and the mother in between the stones. (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

- Get ready! Cover your gear and don't look at the heli with sunglasses on, they'll get scratches :-) The heli is on it's way. Always a rush when that big Russian helicopter is incoming :-) This was the same week when those two British flyfishers and a Russian guide were killed in a helicopter accident at the very same place. A Eurocopter, and not the big ones we are using. (Photo: André Brun)

A pit stop to pick up the russian cook at the main camp :-)

Are and Atle is ready for a journey into the wild. Are, to the left, is an experienced hunter and climber aswell, so Himalaya climbing and West Coast Deer hunting is a part of him. Now, Kola Brown Trout :-) New experiences. (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

 

 

During an hour heli-flight all in all, we passed so many of these non-fished waters, that it made us all wanting to spend a decade here, investigating the waters… ;-)

Look at that stream - probably not fished by man for decades, if ever :-) (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

And when the helicopter sound faded in the horizon, it was all us and the silence. 
The good silence. (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

Have you ever tried opening a beer can WHILE you are playing a 5 lbs wild brown trout? Well, me and Jan had to try :-) (Photo: Jan Haukaas).

Pina at low water level. Atle, Jan and Are are talking flyfishing before breakfast :-) Good times :-)  (Photo: André Brun)

 

 

Mr. Wivestad in action. We headed out for an expediton one of the days. And what a thrill :-)

 

 

Nice fish :-)

The beauty is in the eye of the beholder - and everyone else when it comes to wild browns like this, I guess :-)

A selfie by Are - a good looking trout, just look at the colourings :-) Perfect. Amazing.

 

 

A little different in colours and spots - from another stream, but still a beauty.
