What to expect from our guided fishing trip and visit to the Tsaatan tribes?

Our Tsaatan tribes and fly fishing trip starts from Mörön. It’s a trip designed for those fishermen who travel accompanied and who want to combine fishing with the experience of getting to know a unique nomadic tribe in the world. It’s a physically demanding trip with a great adventure component which has the necessary logistics and equipment to the best service.

In this trip, we’ll be accessing remote areas without coverage and far from a hospital. The traveler must be aware of this reality that’s part of the adventure.

Along the way, we’ll fish in 2 or 3 different rivers, where we’ll be looking for the following combination:

  • Small crystal-clear river with lenok and grayling. It’s possible to catch more than 50 fish in a day’s fishing using large dry flies and mice.
  • Fishing in medium rivers with large wells containing a sizeable population of taimen. Possibility of fishing other species such as lenok and grayling.

Come with us and enjoy this unique adventure that you’ll remember for the rest of your life!
