Flyfishing in Bosnia

Flyfishing in Bosnia and Herzegovina,

Many foreign fly fishermen could simply not believe that Bosnia and Herzegovina provides with excellent fly fishing opportunities, well maintained gin clear waters full of fish, excellent catches, and all at a very modest price. However, after they had their chance to visit our rivers, most of them come back. Regardless if you want to fish small streams, medium and large size rivers, Bosnia provides you with excellent fly fishing opportunities, mainly for wild fish. You can expect to catch huge grayling, beautiful trophy size brown trout, large rainbows and of course, the biggest attraction to all fly fishermen, the Danube Salmon (HUCHO HUCHO). Please visit the “Rivers” section to get more details about the waters.

 

 

Sana Zmajevac/Kljuc – my home river, definitely one of the most interesting river beats to fish. You simply never know what you are going to hook, is it a huge Trout, a Grayling, a big Chub, a big Dace or the monster of the river, the Danube Salmon (HUCHO HUCHO) The length of the fly only beat is 3km long and is characterized with many rapids, very deep pools and also calm areas where the HUCHO HUCHO is feeding on white fish. It is definitely not a river for beginners, it is rather wide and powerful and although the water current does not look dangerous at glance, you have to be careful when wading since its crystal clear color may trick you and you may end up floating or diving in the ice cold water of Sana. The best place to catch a HUCHO on a fly, for a modest 24 EUR daily license. The HUCHO season is open on 1 June and ends on 15 February. The regular season opens on 1 March. Kindly note that fishing for Hucho Hucho is only allowed with a guide, or with the River Guard being present. - Sana LTG – just when driving out from Kljuc and entering the territory of Republika Srpska, on your way to Ribnik, that’s where the Sana beat managed by the LTG company ends. The beat is over 10km long and the water current still very powerful, but not as wide as the beat in Kljuc. However, in this part of Sana, all types of salmonides prevail while the number of white fish is lower, which also makes the HUCHO population less in numbers. The river is full of trout and grayling, especially around the area where Ribnik flows into Sana. The daily license price is 40 EUR or 30 EUR should you use the accommodation provided by LTG company.
