Fishing for nerka red salmon in Kamchatka

Those who have never caught and then proceeded to release a fish have no idea how satisfying this sensation can be – when this scaled being feels again the freedom that was almost taken away from it and plunges into the depths of the ocean. Experienced fisherman, traveller and instructor Dmitry Drozdov set out with a group of friends for the Icha River on the western bank of the Kamchatka Peninsula in hopes of hooking some sockeye salmon. In this Russian Travel Guide programme this fishing expert shares his insight on how outsmarting fish involves being clever, savvy and, of course, a certain element of luck.
