Mongolia Fly Fishing expedition

Limited small parties of sportsmen,  4 - 6 rods only per camp. Lodges Tengis and Chanagai at the wild river Shishkid, our main log-cabin camps at the legendary rivers Tengis and Shargyn in the remote Darhat Basin, holding traditionally most of the great record-class fish. Perfect conditions for fly-fishing in June and early July, sensational hatches of large insects, pure mountain streams, hungry and aggressive fish in prime condition. Precious Golden-Tailed Grayling on dry fly in crystal-clear and wild rivers.

However, a minimum of  3 - 4 rods  are necessary at cost, possibly in combination with another party of fishermen. Preferably traditional fly-fishermen, but also spinning game-anglers by the disciplined use of single-hooks are welcome.


Barbless and solid single-hooks are mandatory, as all of our Giant Taimen are treated with respect, are carefully released and returned into the river.

Only proven fishing tackle for this kind of fishing. Strong tippet-material 30 lbs + and fully-caged reels with reliable drags, possibly disc-drags, are required. 200 yards of 40 lbs backing is necessary for trophy-class Taimen.

A few Grayling and Lenok, mostly hurt specimen, may be taken as a daily bag, in order to highlight the camp-kitchen with some more organic, fresh food from the field, stream and woods of the country.

Strong rods, no lesser fly-rod than # 9/10-weight for big rivers should be considered for this kind of fishing with large and heavy flies, - better class # 12 for big Taimen !  Best are double-handed rods with a deep, powerful action for large rivers, preferably Skagit-Lines or Spey-Lines with a shorter belly and sink-tips. For fishing heavy Lenok Trout and strong Grayling in swift current, a long and smooth # 6/7-weight, 10 foot rod is a very good choice, while a strong 11 to 12 ft. Switch-rod in class # 7 is probably the best all-round fishing tool for the lesser game fish, for Trout and Grayling in Mongolia.

Robust multi-layered clothing for cold climate in natural lighter colors. No fashionable jackets in black or red. A light, but best rain-jacket with membrane and thorn-proof, tough outer material. Breathable waders must be tough and well made, solid boots with ankle support and steel studs. Airy fishing shirts for freedom of movement and with large chest-pockets. Tough outdoor pants or shorts for the spring season. Walked-in leather boots for trekking along the river. A wide-rim and impregnated hat offers far more sun-screen and rain protection to the sportsman, than any modern baseball-cap. Warm wool beanie and neck panuelo-scarf for the fall season. An inflatable life-vest and a solid wading staff with rubber-cap are simply common sense and must be carried at all times, while fishing with us at wild Mongolian rivers.

Fishing & Tour Equipment  in compact backpacks and rod-scabbards and waterproof bags for horseback, rafts and off-road vehicles. No hard suitcases.

The effective fly patterns for Taimen and Lenok will be introduced by the fishing guide at booking of a tour and will be tied at the fishing camp.

More than half of our clients each year are old fishing friends, who are returning clients to our waters since 10 years now, some are even Mongolia veterans from the pioneer times some 20 years ago. - Therefore most of the best tours and dates are booked until December for the next year season.
