Hi Lawrence and Dave,
Greetings from germany! I'll also travel to Kola again, this time my brother is joining me. Unfortunately we will be there in the 32nd week. I hope, that it won't be as hot as it was the last summer...
last year (early August) my flies were much to big. We had the best results on tiny Tubes, like the Conehead Frances( check at sportfish.uk) or the Black Pussy(Gena's Creation). Hook size 8/10/12/14!.
Can't wait to be there again!
