Russia... To most, only a place on map to most Westerners but never the less a country very much entwined by culture and politics
into our collective psyche. To try and pin down Russia as a simple identity is a lost cause, seperated by their vastness there
are many Russia's, all unique. Every flyfisherman dreams about the plentyful and huge Atlantic salmon of the Kola Peninsula,
the mega steelhead of Kamchatka but few realize that another prime spot is in the Lake Baikal region of Siberia which is the
gateway to Mongolia and the legendary Taimen.
As more pictures of Russian flies comes available I will post them here
Travel in the Kola Peninsula can be an adventure
