Yuri Shumakov's Flies
Nordic Way Tube Flies

Yuri Sumakov's flies are a blend of Scandinavian artestry and his own ideas fostered by his ethnic Russian penchant for inventivness. With Yuri's permission I've added some views of Russia's "Wild West", the Kola Peninsula, site of bitterly contested battles for Russia's ice free port Murmansk. Closed for many years the Kola is probably one of the World's best salmon areas known today.

Russian Army APC used for travel on the Kola

Travel in the Kola region is a tenious affair at best, only opened in 1992 conditions require rugged vehicles to navigate the harsh terrain. Of course even armored personal carriers suffer breakdowns from time to time and strong backs are the order of the day. This APC carries 15 rods at a time.
