Video: Fly Fishing Russia in “Zhupanova – A Kamchatka River Adventure”

Zhupanova – A Kamchatka River Adventure from Matt Jones on Vimeo.

Outstanding fly fishing footage from Matt Jones while on a trip with Tailwaters in Eastern Russia at one of the most extraordinary freshwater fly fishing destinations in the world.

From Jones:

“The Zhupanova is perhaps the most beautiful and scenic river in Kamchatka. Its close proximity to Petropavlovsk (one hour by helicopter) and its huge Rainbows make it perhaps the most popular river on the peninsula. The average trout living in the Zhupanova is a solid twenty-five inches! Later in the season around the first week of August, huge white spotted char known as Khundza arrive which average around twenty-seven inches and some of these veracious critters easily bust thirty-five inches and are a rod breaking fight on a seven weight. Of course there is also enormous runs of all five species of salmon (particularly the silver or Coho), however most anglers soon discover that they are in search of the huge rainbows and do not pay any attention to the salmon. Also found in excessive numbers are aggressive dolly varden that are easy to catch, make for good photos, and will grab a mouse or flesh fly with abandon.”
