The message Shireen sent a while ago made me think about an article I saw in
a hunting/fishing magazine a while back. It seems that Mongolia has a
native freshwater salmonid called the taiman that grows up to 100 lbs and 6
feet long. there are historical records of fish over 200 lbs.

I found a website for an outfitter that will take you fishing. I include it
only for the neat pictures.

I just hope that no game and fish depts get any bright ideas.
