THE FLIES!!

For better or worse, the best fishing in the world is usually found in the far-flung corners of the globe, and often takes considerable effort to get there, let alone endure the various discomforts that come with a true wilderness environment. Lucky for us, Ryabaga camp on the Ponoi has worked hard to provide us with all the luxuries of …

From Russia with Love….again

Greetings from the Kola Peninsula! I have returned to the Ponoi River in Russia for another summer of guiding Atlantic salmon. A month has already passed since I stepped foot in Russia, so I figured it about time to send a brief update and share a few photos of the journey, the fishing, and life here in camp. Things are …

Fish has not seen any flies yet and is a good chance for us to …

Back from Russia at Last

After 4.5 months of guiding on the Ponoi, I’m finally back stateside.
