Mark Angelo Releases a Taimen Back Into the Eg River
"The Eg River and its major tributary, the Uur, are located in north central Mongolia close to the Russian border. These are two of Asia's most beautiful rivers and they sustain one of the last great runs of taimen, the world's largest salmonid. As a result, these rivers are now attracting fly-fishermen from overseas in large numbers." Mark Angelo
