The "Hero or Zero" Taimen

Our friends the Vermillion brothers are not your average stay-at-home kind of guys. That’s one reason they were able to help establish Mongolia as a destination for fly fishers chasing taimen. Mark Freeman mentions Dan Vermillion and Jim Andras’s upcoming presentation at the Rogue Flyfishers Association in Medford, Oregon, in his discussion of these oversized trout. “Some populations of taimen in Russia are anadromous, while those in parts of Mongolia are resident fish. Taxonomically, they are trout, making them a virtual tourist trap for anglers looking to experience catching the largest resident trout in the world.” On Oregon’s MailTribune.com.

  • It seems like the fact-checker was on vacation. There are no taimen in Cambodia. Cambodia and Mongolia are totally different ecosystems and very far apart.
