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.
