In Russia, the Kola is filled with famous salmon rivers and the trout-fishing for Wild Brown Trout is also world-class.

The tented camp is strategically placed next to the best pools. The Varzina River Trout Camp is a must for any devoted trout angler. Large Brown Trout that descend from the upper lakes average well over twenty inches—any fish landed is likely to be Trophy. This is no ordinary trout-fishing—this is serious BIG fish territory!

Fly Odyssey works closely with the Varzina River outfitters providing an unparalleled fishing experience whether it be for Atlantic Salmon or Brown Trout and offers the best salmon and trout fly fishing available in Russia at the most competitive prices.
