  1. How much does the average sport fisherman have to “pay” in Russia in order to fish? Is the author writing about just a fishing license? Or do Russian fishermen have to pay access fees to get to the water or on the water?

  2. In the past it was 0 rubles, now it all depends how good connections you have in the local are surrounding the river/lake. But then it will be a bribe of $10-25 for UNLIMTED number of fish for several fishing days.
