Lower Amur, May
Fishing in the lower reaches of the Amur (500 km below Khabarovsk) took place in high but clear water. We were very lucky with the weather.
For 5 days, our camp was visited by 5 very nimble snakes
Banded catfish caught with a fly
Unusual catch of our neighbours - wild carp landed with a ratlin lure. The Mandarin bass is quite common.
The number of the zander in the Amur is growing
Personal record in skygazer - 92 cm, 6 kg

Two different classes of the ships
Amur River could look like this, but only very rarely
