Almost five feet of Mongolian taimen is a lot to handle.

Last week, Dr. Jay Neumann and his guide/zen master Zolboo Bodonguud from Fish Mongolia were able to land this fish of a lifetime on their Classic Canyons Float Trip. More incredibly, this 56-inch taimen ate a topwater fly!

For the last decade, Fish Mongolia has been a huge advocate for taimen conservation in Mongolia. It is great to see their work in action–as this fish was carefully revived and released back into the river.  Their dedication to the protection of this fish should continue to yield results like this in years to come.
