Fly Fishing in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Fly Fishing in Bosnia and Herzegovina 740 , 7 Days

The Ribnik river springs from under the Srnetica mountain near the village Gornji Ribnik. It starts from two strong springs whose volumes varies between 1.5 - 2.5 m3/s. Where the two springs join -the river has characteristics of a high mountain stream. Once the river has made its way to Ribnik village the character has changed to a wide slower flowing river with water clarity that can only be found in ‘springfed’ or ‘chalk’ stream. The water quality makes the river extremely rich of aquatic insects such as shrimps, mayflies, sedges and many other invertebrates that are the basic source of food for the grayling and brown trout. This part of the river along it course provides easy access all the way to where it meets the river Sana.

The Pliva river is another spring fed stream that will be fished during your stay. It offers 8 km of exceptional fly fishing for grayling and brown trout. The rivers rich diversity of fly and plant life makes for fit and healthy fish with grayling to over 60 cm and brown trout over 10 lb being present. Pliva is probably the most beautiful
River in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Sana is a river in the north-western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is a tributary of the Una, into which it flows near Novi Grad. It is longest of the nine rivers that flows through Sanski Most. It has amazing population of grayling. To catch more than 50 fish per day on Sana is nothing unusual. There is also a population of wild brown trout.
