Based on our previous experiences, we specially designed this trip to provide maximum fishing time and minimum traveling time to keen anglers. Mongolia has little infrastructure to provide easy access to fishing ground; alternatively the fact has contributed to survival of game fish in relatively large quantities.

Located in Northern Mongolia fishing grounds proved to be fantastic for Taimen (Hucho hucho taimen), Lenok (Brachymstax lenok), and Arctic Grayling (Thymallus arcticus). Accommodation of nomadic tents (yurts or gers) ensures no hassle camp logistics thus contributing to maximization of fishing time. Fishing waters are located with 30 min to 1,5 hour drive from camp. If preferred picnic meals will be served at fishing grounds. A local angler will accompany you at all times and help choose best sites and bates.
