Umba - ”You must have hooked many salmon, lost some and landed far more, before you can call yourself a “salmon angler – BUT the take from just one Salmon – has the power to hook you for life”!

Few Salmon Rivers in the world, have had such a spellbinding and deeply felt effect and produced so many Salmon Junkies from all over the world. 2 rivers comes to our mind, Ponoi river - Probably the best salmon river in the world and Umba, The holy grail of salmon fishing.

Umba is where it all started and anglers become all “mushy”, when they reflect and talk about Umba. Such is the character of this river and there are really very few places left in this world like it.
