Our fly fishing: Fly fishing in Mongolia is one of the most fascinating adventures you can enjoy for it.

Our flyfishing trips can offer you to have opportunities to get close to nature and its beautiful creations when involved with your fly fishing as it is done mostly in the backdrop of quiet and serene areas of the country.

Essential Information on fly fishing: Our prime concern is the long-term conservation of this amazing fishery and landscape. We work with and invest in the local community for this purpose. We cater to clients who support catch and release fishing and use barb-less hooks. All catch of taimen must be released to honor environment protection and it never to be violated.

Fishes: The most attractive fish in Mongolia is Taimen (Huchotaimen). It reaches length of 100-160 cm here; the biggest pieces of taimen fish caught by our clients were longer than 140 cm. The most common fish is Siberian trout-lenok normally reaching 50-40cm. In some areas even over 70 centimeters. Next to these there are two types of pike here. The pikes differ in their coloring; both reach the length of 70-100cm however it is possible to catch even pieces of 115cm in length. There are also more types of grayling, the widest type being Siberian grayling; pieces of about 40cm are fished commonly. Other fish available here is bass, reaching a trophy length of 40-50cm, burbot reaching up to 1m.
