Prussian carp with a fly

It is not easy to get to this lake. It is located 100 km downstream the Amur River from Khabarovsk, on marshy left bank where there are no roads. I wanted to have a boat at the lake, so I had to go by an inflatable kayakmade by Bratan, with a small outboard jet-motor. I was able to cross several channels of the Amur up to 1 km across; in this boat one feels secure on the medium size wells.
