Have you ever wanted to be alone with the nature. To be surrounded just by birds´ singing, breath of wind, murmur of the creek or silence of the lake surface. Are you curious about the life in the river pools and in lake depths?
You can´t believe it, but you may discover all that. Begin fly fishing!
Fly fishing is the way of fishing. Fly fisherman tries to catch the fish using artificial fly patterns which look like the real flies (more or less). Fly fishing in Slovenia began around 1920. Since then the number of fly fishermen grows constantly. Many of our flyfishing areas promote »catch & release«. We try our best to maintain natural habitats and conditions for fish. Many efforts are put in preserving the endemic species such as "marble trout"(lat. salmo trutta marmoratus) and "adriatic grayling"(lat. thymallus thymallus).
In our waters you will enjoy fly fishing in unspoiled nature. Breathtaking scenery, plenty of fish, spectacular dry fly fishing...these are the facts. Brown trouts, rainbows, huge marble trouts, chars, brook trouts, beautiful graylings, pikes and trophy danubian salmons (lat. hucho hucho). All that is waiting for you! Season for trouts is mostly from March to December, for Hucho Hucho from November to March (only with special licences) and for pikes from May to February.
In Slovenia anglers will enjoy luxurious hotels, private rooms and lodges, excellent meals, and the best slovenian wines. Even a non-angling guests may share the experience. Watersports, rafting (only selected parts of some rivers), canyoning, paragliding, gliding with glider aeroplanes, horse-riding and sightseeing are options for all family members, all day long during the fly fishing season.
