Fly Fishing For The World's Largest Trout

More than two and a half times the size of Texas, Mongolia is a mysterious and ancient country. To foreigners, it is recognized as the fabled homeland of the fierce nomadic warrior Genghis Kahn. Located in northern Asia, Mongolia is bordered to the north by Russia and to the south by China. This precarious political position and natural geographical isolation have for the most part kept Mongolia out of the Western spotlight for the past 100 years. It was only in the 1990s that the first Western tourists began to trickle in. And while the capital city of Ulaanbaatar has experienced a large amount of growth over the past 20 years, outside of the city the country remains exactly the same as it’s always been.

Hucho Hucho Taimen – known to Mongolians as the “River Wolf” – is an exceptionally fierce and ferocious predator that are famous for feeding on other gamefish, ducks, mice, and even large prairie dogs. If you enjoy hunting large, predatory fish and value the quality of catch over quantity, then this is your place. Taimen fishing in Mongolia is rarely a numbers game, but when a three, four, or even five-foot river fish violently smash your fly and the line comes tight, you’ll quickly understand the draw of fishing the rivers of Mongolia.
