The reputation of the Ponoi River as the world’s most outstanding Atlantic Salmon fishery is not in doubt. Proof is the great number of fly fishers who fanatically pursue Atlantic Salmon and take this trek every year making space very hard to obtain. In less than a decade, the Ponoi has grown to be recognized as one of the great fisheries in the world today.


The massive and improving runs, consistent across a long season, provide aggressive and free-taking fish. 

The Ponoi provides Atlantic salmon fishing in two of its purest forms: almost all floating line fishing and excellent opportunities to fish skated dry flies.

Massive Atlantic Salomon run


Unlike Pacific Salmon, the Atlantic returns to the ocean after spawning and revisits the river of their birth to spawn year after year. That explains why they can reach the giant sizes they attain – fish well over 50 pounds are possible. 


The Atlantic is renowned as a great fly rod fish - a very hot fish when hooked in moving water. The first year returnees are usually 3 to 6 pounds and known as “Grilse.” 




The rate per week varies greatly depending on the week you are reserving - USD 7,490 - 15,490 per rod for 7-night/6-days + USD 1,250 for the charter flight Helsinki/Murmansk/Helsinki.
