Hunting and Fishing

Catching Kumzha-Bulltrout on the Shores of the Barents Sea

Russia and Norway are the only two countries with access to the Barents Sea coast, located on the edge of the Arctic Ocean. Getting the chance to cast a rod in this severe environment however, is an absolute dream for any fisherman. During the short arctic winter, the Barents coast is teeming with brown trout as the fish travel through on their way to lay eggs. The trout leave the sea, swimming to the mouths of the Kola Peninsula’s cleanest mountain streams. Hundreds of kilometres of polar tundra surround the area, making it most difficult for men to reach. Only the most determined of fishermen manage to get there, where they then face the challenges served to them by the northern climate in hopes of catching a prize fish.
