We are very busy at the moment getting the catch reports and pictures organized in time, as the fishing during the last 2 days has been very good and our fishermen (and women) are fishing hard during these days in improving condition. The morning of the 9th of June started with a very nice salmon caught by Serge Rameau from France. His first salmon on the NFC beats weighted in with 11,9kg (26lb).
During the afternoon it was again Per Heikkilä who caught the first fish from one of our free for all pools, a nice salmon of an estimated weight of 5kg (11 lbs). Per released this fish.
Ken Sawada was able to catch his next nice fish on the NFC beats. He estimated to weigh his salmon about 9kg (20lb)
Also Johan Wallestad had a successful day - he caught 2 salmon during this day, the first one of approx. 7,5kg (16.5lb) on our Beat E2. Than, short before midnight, he has done some casts on one of the free for all pools and caught another salmon of approx. 5kg (11lbs) He released both fish carefully.
