Chernobyl Fish

Choose your fishing gear carefully

Chernobyl Fish thanks to Keith Blake

On 26 April 1986, in Pripyat, Ukraine, Soviet Union, the largest nuclear reactor of its kind exploded at the Chernobyl Power Station. The subsequent fire released large quantities of radioactive contamination into the atmosphere, which spread over much of Western USSR and Europe. It's considered the worst nuclear power plant accident in history, and one of only two classified as a level 7 event on the International Nuclear Event Scale (the other being the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011). Chernobyl has since become a world-class angling site for fishermen around the world who are looking for the ultimate challenge.
