    Default Fly fishing in China

    Overall, it may be one of the worst countries for fishing. Its amazing country, amazing rivers. But there is one huge problem, poachers.... Everywhere, even during day time. They use electricity and nets most of the time... And other means to catch fish.
    Even when using rod, there is no any limitations on how small fish they will take or how many....

    But, there is bright side. Any place without people and remote can be full with fish.

    Here are some videos i made during my trip to central part of China....





    There are few videos with indopacific tarpon....

    My kind of fishing. Love fishing the remote, wild and wonderful places! Are those fish native Lenok? Another place for the list anyway along with the small stream trout of Mexico and maybe one day if things improve the trout of northern Afghanistan. Japan for the various species of char is high on my list as my next fishing adventure though.

    Dgp, thanks... Glad you liked it.

    Sean, i enjoy it too.... Love catching new species.... Lenok was native ... Locals devastated the population, so they reintroduced it again.. now it has amazing population here ... Not rare to get more than 100fish a day

    Well you've really cracked it. Would have been good to see what flies you are using and a close up of the trout to see their markings. Truly wild fish never seen an artificial fly and not easily spooked with your catching in the same pool. Thanks for sharing

    Great - certainly the best of the three. Incredible how many fish next to the boulder and weren't spooked by the casting and catching !. Maybe I missed it but was your chinese friend a guide? Looked as though you were way off the beaten track (be interesting to know which part of China you were) but then did I see crash barriers in the background as though close to a road? Be good to know the story behind this trip.

    I live in china.... People here are pretty new in fly fishing so i am teaching tem sometimes giving some lessions. This is a friend. I was teaching him about euronymphing, and he learns lretty fast. This river is in central china, near Xi'an. There is almost no fishing here. So every time i go its great.
    Fish are not used to people as predators.... They swim away if they see a man, but this was deep spot so they were cool.

    Sometimes, if i stay still, fish come back and i can do some sight fishing Fly fishing in ChinaFly fishing in ChinaFly fishing in China

    Interesting part are animals around, pandas, golden monkeys, leopards.... Pretty wild. This lart of the river is near village road.... Village has less than 100people. We also went upstream, and it was amazing too.. but fish were smaller.... (Second day)

    Hopefully, i will go again.
