This blog is dedicated to flyfishing which is the most interesting fishing method.
I am living in the Russian Far East, love fishing and travel, flyfish since 1986.

At the Piltun Bay

Piltun Bay in the north-east of the Sakhalin Island is 56 km long and 12 km wide. This brackish water body is mostly shallow. The best fishing is at the outlet connecting the bay with the Sea of Okhotsk.
