Taimen Tours  -  New Season 2014 - "MONGOLIAN  SUMMER"

 Our present fall season for Taimen is not yet fully completed, and still we have already planned and prepared new fishing tours and exciting wilderness expeditions at legendary Taimen rivers for the next year´s season.

It shall be our pleasure, if there will be a special Taimen Tour for You, among these colorful and many-sided fishing explorations, which may awake the interest of even the most experienced fly-fisherman and globetrotter, the demanding sportsman and adventurer ...

- From the avid grayling angler specialist, who can follow up his passion from our comfortable log-cabin camps and fish right at the gates of the wilderness for precious Golden-tailed Grayling and the plentiful, common Baikal Grayling. From the same camp he may fish every day for large Lenok Trout in prime condition, and for the most wanted king of the salmonids, the elusive Hucho Taimen, a grand fish of the wilderness.

- Through the demanding Taimen angler, who will be chasing the largest of trophy-class specimen at remote rivers and in the tranquility of the Mongolian - Siberian Taiga, and still enjoy the comfort of our legendary and traditional wilderness camps.

- Up to the passionate adventurer and sportsman, who may be joining us at our demanding Taimen expeditions, in his search for new challenges and undiscovered fishing grounds at wild rivers, in unaccessable mountains of Mongolian National Parks in the North, and across the endless green hills of Manchuria in the East ...

The genuine and raw fishing experience in Mongolia.

Taimen Wilderness Expeditions Fall Season 2014

Mongolian National Park Headwaters

This year´s new offer,  - a demanding fishing expedition 15 days with horses, tents and rafts along the Siberian borderline in untouched backcountry at the upper Delger Moron River.  This wild river is meandering through deep canyons within a vast National Park. Special permissions from the governments and authorities of both countries, - Russia and Mongolia, will be arranged by us for every single fisherman individually. Only 4 to 6 experienced, physically healthy and enduring sportsmen can take part at this wilderness fishing expedition and river float tour. The second week of this tour will be operated from a well-equipped base camp of native yurta-gers, situated at a strategic and most productive fishing spot at the upper Delger Moron. Pure wilderness Tour across a breathtaking landscape, extraordinary high Taimen results during our first expedition in the spring of 2012 and the following expedition in 2013.  Just as productive for large Lenok Trout and Baikal Grayling in the crystal clear river. Conditions are perfect for fly-fishing. The upper Delger Moron is a river, which must have evolved with his dramatic canyons, bizarre rocks and magical deep pools in the dreams and visions of a fly-fisherman ...   


The Green Hills of Mandchuria

A slightly shorter, more comfortable 14 day expedition is another new offer for the 2014 season,  - at the untamed Chalchyn River among the green hills and grasslands in the vast East of the country, close to Chingis Khaan´s birthplace. Well-equipped ger camp and rafts for shorter river explorations for spotted Amur Pike and steel-blue Eastern Taimen, at the contributory stream to the mighty Siberian Amur River. Very productive in the last years fishing season, great fish habitat, plenty of wildlife to watch and herds of east-asian antelopes, deer and maral elk are roaming in this wide open steppe and rolling green hill country, which vividly recall the good old times of big game hunting in East Africa ...

Mongolia Fly Fishing expedition

Limited small parties of sportsmen, 4 - 6 rods only  per camp. Main camps Tengis and Chanagai at the wild river Shishkid in the north. Fishing lodge at the legendary rivers Selenge, Ider-Chuluut and Delger Moron. Ger camps at the wild rivers Uur, Onon and Chalchyn in the east of the country. All of these big rivers are traditionally holding most of the great record-class Hucho Taimen.

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 and are carefully released and returned into the river. Strong tippet-material and fully-caged reels with reliable drags are required. 200 yards of 40 lbs backing are necessary for Taimen in swift current.

Strong rods and proven fishing tackle. No lesser fly-rods than class # 9/10 -weight for this kind of fishing with big and heavy flies, - better class # 12 for Taimen !  Double-handed rods for big rivers are the best option, preferably with a deep and powerful action in combination with shorter bellies and sink-tip lines, or floating and intermediate Skagit lines.

For fishing massive Lenok-Trout and strong Grayling in fast flowing rivers, a smooth and long # 6/7 -weight single handed rod in 10 ft. length is a very good tool, whilst a modern switch rod 11 to 12 ft. long in class # 7, is probably the best all-round fly rod for fishing the lesser game fish of northern 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 many of the best tours and dates are booked until December for the next year season.
