hi it 's me and my huge baby ;)

Mongolia 2009, fuji pro 800


this is taimen ( Hucho taimen ), the biggest sweetwater salmon on the world and one of the rarest. Still in Mongolia and Siberia, disappearing all over the world.

This one it's my biggest fish i ever cought, it was 122 cm long, very very strong and crazy, fighting with him it was absolutely fantastic expirence. This individual is still alive ! In mongolian language it is " tol alić bolch qui" what means don't kill taimens ;) after the picture i leave him alone ;) We don't kill them at all, never ;)
