Fishing for mikizha in Kamchatka

Kamchatkan trout is one of the species of salmon found on the Kamchatka Peninsula. This type of rainbow trout can reach up to a metre in length and tends to prefer the deepest parts of the river. There it is easier for the fish to stalk its prey as it is pushed along by the river current. It is exactly here that fishermen keep their eyes peeled for this scaled predator. One such man is Dmitry Drozdov, a fly fishing instructor. He and his colleagues travelled 12,000 kilometres, from Moscow to Kamchatka, for this fishing trip. In this Russian Travel Guide programme we will witness the peninsula’s rich natural beauty and discover the fine art of fishing in a river environment.
