B 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.

In the Volga delta

In the second part of April I was able to fish the Volga River delta near the Caspian Sea – close to the Akusinski village. The timing was not perfect for fishing – the weather was cold, and the water level – very low. The fish was not active, so the fishing was tough. I was able to catch 4 fish species with flies; these were yellow perch, asp, redfin, and silver bream Blicca bjoerkna.
