“I experienced what is undoubtedly the best rainbow trout fishery left on the planet. Big hungry rainbows attacking mice patterns skittered across the surface, wakes coming like a scene right out of Jaws. Fish that had never seen a fisherman or an artificial fly in their lives. Kamchatka is about the same size as California but as it has been a restricted Russian military base since before the Cold War, it’s been off limits to visitors. It’s a true wilderness filled with countless rivers and 150 volcanos (50 of which are still active), and more brown bears than anywhere in the world. Sit back, relax, spend five minutes and enjoy.”
