In winter 2016-2017 (I hope) the book "Flyfishing Russia. The Far East" will come out of print. This is how its front page will look:
This book is covering completely new area which does not have much publicity in the Western sport-fishing community. The North-Eastern Asia or the Russian Far East is a vast region between Japan and Alaska – cold, uninhabited, and unexplored. The book will have over 500 pages and several hundreds of color photographs, several maps of the region.
The main topics of the book are:

Description of the main freshwater sport-fish of the region. This chapter is covering 55 fish species of the fish which could be caught with flies. Images and descriptions of the best flies for catching different fish species help selecting the proper lure, and to tie your own flies necessary for the success in the new region.
