Fishing near the border...

I had a extra day during my trip and so I went fishing with Dr. Shin to fish for lenok near the border. It's peaceful there, other than the occasional ringing of firearms going off nearby (military base), as well as an occasional cannon. As we fish near the bridge, soldiers marching in line watch on. The big lenok hasn't yet fully started their journey down south in this creek, but the smaller ones were present, which signals the start of the migration. It's cool thinking that these fish travel up and down the border, free from all the nonsense that humans/ nations fight about. Reading the caution sign for land mines is a little nerve racking, and you do walk a little slower in areas with thick cover. We bothered a lot of smaller lenok this day, and it was just nice sitting at the banks eating our lunch.

형, 오늘 같이 가서 즐거웠습니다, 그리고 감사합니다. 곧 또 봐요.


  1. Wow, do you need to get special permit to fish there?

  2. 네, 저도 즐거웠어요.
    오랜만에 만나 같이 낚시도하고,
    맛있는 저녁도 먹고....

    다음에 건강한 모습으로 또 만나요...ㅎㅎ

  3. FF: No special permit needed to fish here, but you are fishing at your own risk. You can only go up a few kilometers on the river then access is limited.

    Dustin, welcome back on your blog. Looking forward to the cicada pattern.

  4. Is that going to be our last lenok this season? It always nice to see them.

  5. I think it's the beginning. I saw that they were catching some big ones 50-70cm at BongHwa but the waters are not really clean there and there are too many people there. After the rain this week, the big ones are supposed to migrate down. They will be there for you when you go in Dec.
