Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia
Located virtually at America’s back door, only a few hours by plane from Anchorage, Alaska, is Russia. Mysterious, misunderstood and often mislead, this frontier holds a universe of fly-fishing opportunity that has only just been tapped. Forget all your Cold War notions and Chernobyl nightmares. This is a country so vast and with infrastructure so undeveloped that the majority of its hinterlands remain totally unspoiled and barely fished.
Kola Peninsula, Russia
Kola River — The Destination for Trophy Atlantic Salmon. The Kola is the largest river on the Northern Kola Peninsula emptying into the Barents Sea. No wonder the entire peninsula derives its name from it. The camp is situated about 250 miles above the Arctic Circle just below where the Kitsa (a major tributary and a very fine salmon river in its own right) joins the Kola.
