Amur grayling (Thymallus grubii) was once commonly considered to be a single species in the Amur drainage system. More

Amur grayling usually reaches a length of 305 mm and a weight of 320 g. It feeds on benthic organisms. In catchments of the rivers Kerulen, Onon, Balzh and Hurh it is fished by anglers. More

The gorgeous Amur grayling, one of several grayling unique to Siberia, is another bonus for flyfishermen. Much like our arctic grayling, but smaller and much more colorful, it has distinct, vertical bands of fluorescence and brilliant gold-bronze shading. More
