Photo album of the Chavanga river salmon fishing trip. 
Here I will post photos that were not included in the early blog posts



  One of  our old friend  ask as to try his   old pattern from 1930 -th.  It works. 




Two Jeorges looking for comfortable pool


Pokosy camp wide pool


Big volume of slow water - the place where autumn run  salmon stay



powerfull spey, the distance is a key for success.



fresh salmon not far from the river bank



Springer, up-stream of Pantalony Pool



Small salmon hooked in the estuary



Salmon lookes like a grilse.







We prepare our boat to have more territory for fishing


Lanch time, Pokosy camp


Kelt, salmon becomes more and more silver. Next week kelts will leave the river


High water level means difficult wading and difficult casting.



Looking for best salmon pools. Cable Pol right side of the river


Autumn run salmon has purple hue, sometime intensive



Breakfast, difficult choice. Somebody don`t want meat, somebody - fish and eggs, somebody - porridge





local caribou


Eggs, sandwich and porridge  - our breackfast



Young bear is comming for the lanch



Technical problems. Mid part of the Chavanga river



I was surprised but common decision - pork is very testy


no comment


 At the beginning of a season we have to fish the most wide parts of the river where waterflow was not so strong. Salmon hooked at the river estuary


Autumn run salmon


sirver salmon





Autumn run salmons in a different colours, shape and condition







Vasil and his autumn run salmon



Clay Pool, one of the best in high water condition


Deep hole near the bank not far from the main current. The same spots were productive during all high watre period


Several salmons from one spot



The biggest pool in the mid part of the river


Cable Pool, autumn run salmon



  This line of white foam show us the dippest place where salmon stay



Dinner time



Good size salmon run away

Whare is my  extra large 3 metr x 3 metr  landind net???


Next salmon at the Clay Pool


we must trust to our flies




Left side - effective fly, right side - the best from many seasons but too small now


 Jeorge   serves as proof that salmon is everywhere



effective fly discussion



Very offen grayling activity  match with salmon activity







Here you can see the size of the river


Fresh salmons enter the river
