Giant Russian Taimen

Has anyone ever heard of or fished for Taimen? I came across this film today where some guys were fly fishing deep in the wilderness in Russia for them and after doing a little research, I was amazed.

They can get up to 6 ft long. I couldn’t imagine battling them on a fly. I read that they are called River Wolves because they are so predatory.

I would be interested to hear about your experiences with these fish if you have any. Here is the film I saw also in case you want to check it out.
