This year, The Glenlivet Single Malt, in association with Country Life, is in search of our national landscapes’ most treasured elements, calling one and all to share their favourite natural legacies. The goal is to unearth natural treasures, places of beauty that have left an impact on the local community or Britain as a whole.
The Vintage Magazine is pleased to bring you the first in a series of Newsletters from our business member, Devonshire Wealth Management.

2012 was a good year for risk assets, all things considered, but what is in store for 2013?
The “Fiscal Cliff” was the most pressing issue facing the markets at year end and remains a key consideration in January. We do need to consider the implications of this “deal” before analysing potential market returns in the year ahead.
LAKSELVA, NORWAY – UNQUESTIONABLY THE BIG FISH RIVER OF THE MOMENT
The Lakselva river is now one of the most reliable rivers in the world when it comes to producing salmon of over 40lbs. We have been fishing the river over the past six seasons and in almost every week we have been there, one or more of our guests has landed a fish of over 40lbs – this simply cannot be said of other rivers, even on the Kola.
We have four rods remaining in our very popular hosted weeks where you will fish the three well-regulated ticketed zones. Norway has a reputation for over-rodding rivers and whilst this is not exclusive water, the Lakselva river board have very sensibly and sensitively managed the number of rods on the beats and it never feels over crowded.
This is for those who want to land the fish of a lifetime without breaking the bank. Please contact James Dent, Charlie White or Christopher Robinson for further details.
AROY, NORWAY – YOUR OWN PRIVATE RIVER
We are very excited to be able to offer the iconic Aroy river in Norway. When we say we can “offer the river”, we mean it. This most famous of Norwegian rivers fishes only four rods and is owned exclusively, meaning double bank fishing along its length and with a lodge that you fill with your own private party.
The river was memorably recalled in Charles Ritz’s book “A Fly Fisher’s Life” where he described it as one of the most enthralling rivers he had ever fished. It has not been let to anyone outside of the immediate family for 50 years and we are delighted to be able to provide the rare opportunity to take your own river, either for a week or just three days and experience Norwegian fishing as our forefathers did. Please contact Christopher Robinson, Charlie White or Hannah Treliving for further details.
VARZUGA – VERY FEW RODS REMAINING
2012 was a phenomenal season on the Varzuga, we landed over 8,500 fresh salmon in our short six week season – an average of just under 50 fish per rod per week, a figure unmatched anywhere else in the world. Unsurprisingly demand has been very strong for 2013 and we now only have a few rods left at the Middle Varzuga Camp, the most productive camp of all.
There are four rods available in the peak weeks and we are also running a June week at Middle Camp, priced at £3,500 including air charter from Helsinki, for those who wish to fish the best that the Kola has to offer at a highly advantageous price. Please contact Charlie White, Lynsey Mair or Christopher Robinson for further details.
ICELAND – A TRICKY SEASON IN 2012 BUT DEMAND FOR THE BEST REMAINS HIGH
2012 will not go down as one of Iceland’s best seasons. Low water at the beginning of the year appeared to be to blame but, even when the rains came, the number of salmon that we have become used to simply did not materialise. There were exceptions to the rule and whilst numbers were down across the board, some rivers still produced very respectable returns.
The East and West Ranga were two of these and their catch statistics, superb guides, comfortable lodges and the fact that they are close enough to Reykjavik to allow for a three day trip means that they remain in high demand. If you seek high volume salmon fishing but are unable to spare a whole week from work or family commitments then do take a closer look at these rivers. Please contact Louise Mackenny or Charlie White for further details.
