World Class

Trout Fishing

Its easy to forget that there’s much more to fishing in Mongolia than chasing Taimen. For starters Mongolia could be considered a world-class trout-fishing destination just for the abundance and size of its Lenok.  The Siberian equivalent of brown trout; Lenok feed on prolific mayfly hatches and will readily take a dry fly. Grayling are also plentiful.

Taimen

Conservation

Taimen are celebrated as the largest salmonid. Taimen may live fifty years and measure over 1.5 meters. Our primary objective is to protect taimen and their habitat. Wild taimen require immense, ecologically intact watersheds to survive.  Under long-term and exclusive conservation management agreements on two of Mongolia’s best taimen rivers, we oversee angling for 650 kilometers…

What Our Clients Say

The trip worked so well because the people on it were simply fantastic, and the organisation that went into putting us lot truly into the wilds in a way that we could easily deal with it was seamless – huge thanks guys.

To find fish of this size living in such an incredibly beautiful river is mind blowing.

The Fish Mongolia operation is one of the slickest float trips any of us have experienced. Andy Parkinson has refined the experience in the extreme over his years of experience fishing this river.

The river valley is absolutely stunning – a wide river alternating between rapids and deep pools, a wildflower laced valley floor and big high cliffs like bookmarks on either side. We had the entire river to ourselves.

The River is a piece of heaven lost in time, and floating down it from the ger camp left each of us in awe everyday. The fishing was fantastic, watching my brother hold that 1m 25 fish after the battle of the “Bus Stop” will remain with me forever.

– Peter Mcleod - http://blog.aardvarkmcleod.com/?p=375

Having experienced one of your luxury float trips along with the incredible fishing I will never do another Alaskan float trip again. I realized my dream of 23 years when I finally hooked into that taimen of a life time.
