Default Fly fishing in Bosnia, in the heart of Europe

Hi !!
Come back from a 6 days trip in Bosnia Herzegovina, a top fly fishing destination in the center of Europe (about 500 km east of Italy).

The rivers are crystal clear, and there is a lot of fish (browns and grayling) but fishing is quite difficult (n° 16 to 22 dry flies, with 7X leader)

It's a private fishing on Ribnik river, and it's 40€/day, in No Kill program on about 4 miles of river.

If you're interested in this destination, please contact me

See you

Hi A.J. !!

Sure !! execpt the daily fishing ticket, (40€), the food and accomodation is cheap in Bosnia (you can eat for $6, and 1/2 board just in front of the river for $35 a day !)

Sweden, where I am now, is very expensive, on the other side of the coin. I wish the food and board, but most importantly the beer, was cheaper! Fishing is far cheaper overall in the US, which is nice for me since I fish in a number of states, but I only pay about $100 dollars overall for a number of licenses annually, so definitely cheaper than 40 euro a day.

Yes you're right ! 40€ a day IS expensive....but here, in south Europe, if you want goods rivers, you have to pay...or go in Norway or Sweden, or better, oversea....

Those are some HUGE grayling! Very nice. Many of my neighbors are from Bosnia, none of them have ever mentioned fishing much. One guy apparently was a pro soccer player over there before he moved state side.
