A change in the weather

It was bound to happen and yesterday was the day when the weather changed. We started in sunshine but it was getting colder all the time and by 7pm last night there was a real chill in the air. I am told that it is snowing in Murmansk and whilst it is not doing that here yet, I would not be surprised if we got some by the end of the day.
We have had the most amazing week and the 5 rods have finished with just over 220 fish taken in stunning sunshine so it was due a change and I will leave it to Christopher to report on how the weather fluctuates this week.

Departing for Murmansk today

We are flying back to Murmansk this morning for the charter flight back to Helsinki and I will hopefully see all of our outcoming rods before I have to get on the plane. I will be back in the office on Monday and if you have any questions about the fishing or the programme on the Varzuga please do not hesitate to contact me.
