Headwaters Expedition, Delger River, Taimen Fishing, Mongolia, Aardvark McLeod

Headwaters Expedition, Mongolia; 4 - 16 July 2018

Steffan Jones will be leading a small group of anglers into the hallowed waters of the Delger River Headwaters. A huge area of water that has in parts never seen a fly fisherman before, the goal is to find the elusive taimen.

The guides call this place “The Temple”. The river here is extremely isolated and strikingly beautiful. Steep, forested walls frame the boulder filled stream. The high-country river is very well protected and holds ancient taimen that rarely see a fly. The Headwaters Expedition is about quality, not quantity. You fish meticulously, quietly walk/wading accompanied by a professional guide. There are some enormous fish in these waters. When the river is clear, there are opportunities to sight fish for extremely large taimen reaching sixty-inches. The trout fishing is generally spectacular. This is a more rugged and adventurous trip requiring a good level of fitness. Most of the trips also require a basic knowledge of horse riding but the trip can be organised without.
