Mongolian Taimen

The Weekly Picture : 7

This picture was taken at the end of the journey, on the way back to civilization, after a 3 weeks expedition in the north of Mongolia.

A pretty amazing place with an unbelievable landscape.

The weather was very tough with night temperatures till minus 15°C. We slept in usual tents, only protected by heavy sleeping bags.

Every day we stood in the cold water from morning to evening, but the fishing was fantastic and I caught the fish of my dreams, a massive mongolian Taimen. And with this sundowning picture ends an unforgettable trip.
