Bill Drury reports from Umba - 17-24 September

Bill Drury reports from the fourth week on the Umba where 39 fish were landed for the week...

The weather was, in general, quite mild for most of the week. We had one day of steady rain which subsequently stopped the river dropping for a time, as I write this report the river is still dropping albeit very slowly.

Catches for the week kept the same sort of pattern as previous weeks and some good sized fresh fish were caught along with some coloured ones.

39 fish were landed for the week - 22 up to 8lbs, 15 of 9-19lbs and 2 of 20lbs which were both fresh. Chris A had a 20lber from Nick Pool on a small Snaelda and I had a 20lbs fish from the second pot below Golden Pool on a small unweighted orange tube fly.

As I write this report a couple of sea liced fish have been landed on the lower river.

Arctic char fishing in Greenland has been on my radar for a long time but for various reasons I have never actually taken the plunge. That all changed last year when, on the way to host a group on the East Ranga in Iceland, I spoke to Valgerdur Arnardottir (Arni Baldursson’s daughter) who had just come back from Greenland and was utterly raving about it.
