Mongolia is one of the most unique fly fishing destinations in the world.
Taimen, the biggest salmon in the world, is the top predator of all trout species. When they jump up from the surface catching the fly, it makes you mindful of the moment. Taimen is a real indicator fish to measure the cleanliness of the river, so get ready to fish in pristine wilderness.
