Hello Per!

It is good to see your avatar after your busy time on the Kola! Are you planning to hit the Babine this year? If so, it would be great to see you again as you blow through town on your way north.

Per Stadigh JR,
That fits well with what I have been told, too.

JR SPEY A clarification on the post by Dave Drennan. For years the Ponoi River lease was owned by the Ponoi River Company, a partnership headed up by Thorpe McKenzie, a well known salmon fisherman. It was BOOKED by Frontiers. The British company company bought the rights from the Ponoi River Company, but it can still be booked through Frontiers. At least this is my understanding.

Per Stadigh Hello,

Things indeed are moving around a bit up on the Kola. The company I work as a consultant to, The Kharlovka Company, has recently taken all fishing back in hands. Our choice is not to employ any agents in the future as we much prefer to deal straight with our clients. As a consequence we already are becoming overbooked for many weeks of the 2003 season.

The 2002 season has been unreal. As of last Saturday:

So far there have been 5 (Five) great 40+ lbs MSW salmon with the best an awesome 46.5 lbs by David Latimer. There have been 44 (Fourty Four) over 30 lbs. We have landed 3120 fish in total. 79% have been salmon and 21% have been grilse. There have been 2075 fish over over 10 lbs with an average weight of 15.1 lbs. The average number of fish per rod through the season including the early spring weeks is 16.2 fish. With two weeks to go we are hoping for 3500 fish for the season.

For more information I suggest that you e-mail me at:

"Tight lines"

Frontiers Travel ran the lodges on the Ponoi 'til recently. A company in England, Shackelton, has bought Frontiers. Should make no difference in how the business is run. I fished the Ponoi the last week of July and all accomadations were excellent - wish I could say the same for the fish. Very few fresh fish - not much fight in those I caught.

I was surfing the net looking for info regarding salmon fishing on the rivers of the Kola Penninsula today and was surprised to see that there seems to be a change in control of the rivers taking place. I was wondering whether anyone had firsthand knowledge of what is going on.
