I am looking for books or websites about Steelhead fly fishing in Russia. Does anyone have recommendations?
Just checked that site out. "Science, Programs, Sponsorship" ???
What it's circumventing is the fact that steelhead are a Red Listed species in Russia (equivalent to ESA listed in the US). The trips have to operate under a scientific shroud to be "legal".Just checked that site out. "Science, Programs, Sponsorship" ???
What Russian law/regulation is this program circumventing? Why not a straight up Full Services" Guided week for $10,500?
Can I get a tax receipt?
I may be wrong on this, but I believe it was simply the lack of knowledge of what existed there and the strength (or lack thereof) that prompted the choice (uncertain status). Interestingly, the first documentation of the steelhead as a unique species came from Kamchatka sometime in the 1700s I believe.Thanks for that information Sleestak,
Interesting that they are Red Listed when the Kamchatka habit is so pristine. Makes me think that the threats to mykiss on our side of the Pacific apply on that side of the Pacific too. ie; Mixed stock fisheries problem, over fishing, marine as well as inland poaching.
Does this mean that Kamchatka steelhead lore is greater than reality?
