  • No gaffs or tailers
  • Always handle the a fish with wet hands

  1. Kola Peninsula, Sidorovka River. On salmon streams the fishing is done mostly with a guide who helps the fisherman to land the fish and release it with no harm. Sometimes it is necessary to revive the fish for half hour prior to release .
