Russia Kola Peninsula - Welcome to the real salmon heaven
Dear Lax-á Friends - Superlatives are queuing up again when trying to describe our 2008 Russian season. A season we all will remember for both the extraordinary fishing and extreme weather conditions. For 2009 Lax-á have “hand picked” probably the best salmon programmes on the Kola Peninsula - and with more than Eighteen years hard earned experience on the Kola we know what we are talking about!
These two smaller rivers reminds a lot of Iceland , gin clear great for floating lines and surface flies and the hitch. we use the Varzina helicopter for the transfer of Sidorovka and Drozdovka anglers.
Taimen fishing is one of the most exciting and prestigious fishings. Taimen is accepted to salmon bloodline which allways live in the inner waters in comparison with the other salmons which come to the inner waters or rivers only for spawning.
Wonderful river , smaller than Kharlovka and Litza. Most ideal for surface fishing , full floating lines , riffling hitch , skating flies , small leaders , small double handed rods and single handed rods as well , this is delicated fishing.
Lower Vazuga and Kitza, Middle Varzuga , Upper Varzuga,
Pecha Ulita, Pana ... other rivers to complete our portfolio in Russia.
