Fly Fishing Russia: The Far East

Far East Distribution
$49.95

Dr. Mikhail “Misha” Skopets -
The book is Skopets’ magnum opus, representing an incredible breadth of knowledge amassed on more than a hundred river expeditions spanning four decades across the whole of the Russian Far East (RFE). Described variously by colleagues of his as “an old-school field scientist,” “a migrating bird,” and “Indiana Jones for wild salmon,” Skopets’ equal and overlapping capacities as professional ichthyologist, flyfishing innovator, wilderness guide, author, and key figure in the birth and growth of flyfishing inside Russia, puts him alone at the center of an extremely specialized Venn diagram. Only Misha Skopets could have written this book.

Fishing cultures everywhere rely heavily on superlatives to derive and convey meaning. The Biggest Fish, for example, being sort of like God. In this way the RFE will be a place of intense interest to any adventurous flyfisher. It is the purest, most vast, sub-arctic wilderness left on Earth, through which flow tens of thousands of holy grail rivers filled with astounding biodiversity and, sure enough, even The Biggest Fish.
