Being flexible and adaptable – that's what I learned from the fish. Initially, my friend Christoph Hottgenroth and I had booked week 26 for salmon fishing on the Kharlovka. However, Covid-related travel restrictions for Austrians led to Christoph going salmon fishing without me.
Justin, the lodge manager, proved to be just as flexible: We agreed that once I had a visa, I could come for VIP brown trout fishing. During the VIP Brown Trout program, there's a helicopter pilot on-site at all times. This allows you to fly to the best spots on the Litza and Kharlovka rivers whenever you want.
