    Fishing for harius and lenok fish
    The most joyful event for every fisherman to catch a huge fish. Today you will have such a chance. However, today the rules of the game will be different. "Catch and release" are common practices for fisherman. After capture, the fish are unhooked and returned to the water. Often, a fast measurement and weighing of the fish is worthwhile. Using barbless hooks, it is often possible to release the fish without removing it from the water (a slack line is frequently sufficient).

Le voyage était parfaitement bien préparé en amont avec Irina qui est de plus une personne très agréable. Juste, sur place, l'information sur les transferts est un peu floue. Merci beaucoup à toute l'équipe, j'espère trouver l'occasion un jour de voyager à nouveau avec vous !
