"Korea's Only Fly Fishing Guide"

December 16, 2008 By: Marshall Cutchin

“South Korea holds the world’s southernmost population of lenok (also called Manchurian trout, Brachymystax lenok) that only exists in deep mountain valleys. They are distributed from Korea up through Russia and Mongolia and are mentioned in one of the best outdoor books ever written, Dersu the Trapper by V. K. Arseniev.” Field & Stream just published a photo essay by James Card, who writes about pursuing cherry trout (actually a type of Pacific salmon) and other native species along the southern half of the 416-mile long Baekdudaegan mountain range.
Card has also written for MidCurrent on fishing the Korean DMZ.
