Supply run

A quick blog today as Friday is the day when we resupply all of the camps with provisions for next week so it will be a long day on the helicopter.

Yesterday was more of the same across the camps in terms of catches and weather.  It is still really cold and we had driving rain for most of the day.  Full credit to the team here who all put in a full shift and not one of the boats came back early.

That was probably because they were all catching fish.  We finished with 31 fish for the day to our 8 rods.  Predictably Brendan was the top rod but he was closely followed by Bruce B and Andrew W-D who had 5 each.

At Kitza there was better news as Brad B hit the first of the pods to run the river and he landed 4 from Gold Mine – things are starting to happen there and I suspect that next week could be pretty good.

Middle continues apace and they had a further 76 fish to their 12 rods. Jeremy B landed 6 fish from Fortress including one of 16lbs whilst Brian W had 12 to his rod from Upper Fortress and Birthday.

I am off to Pana in a minute with their supplies and I understand that another fish was caught just outside of camp by one of the guides yesterday so it will be interesting to see what I find when I get up there.

There will be no blog tomorrow as we fly to Murmansk to say goodbye to these guests and welcome our new ones and I hope that on Sunday I can report some better weather – snow was not really what we wanted to wake up to this morning…
