AL, Huchen Guide


Well – how could I be a proper administrator of this Hucho-hucho fishing dedicated page, if I would not be a Hucho fly fisherman myself!?

As I had been writing so many happy stories for other hucho hunters in the past years, Luck some how avoiding giving me a 110+ beast (honestly – even 101+) cm Hucho!
