Slovenia is a very interesting country for sports fishing. In a small territory smaller than Switzerland, there are over 300 districts for spinning, carp fishing and fly fishing. The latter is very popular among locals and tourists as well.
The most prized fish species for fly fishing are brown trout, grayling, marble trout and rainbow trout. Lately, fishermen like to fly fish for pikes and huchens, the endemic of the Danube basin and the largest Slovenian salmonids.
The territory where the Alps and the Mediterranean are in contact is crossed with numerous streams and rivers. Here fly fishing is interesting from April to the end of September, when fishing in most of the fly fishing districts is completed. The fish are healthy and big, as this photo also speaks of:
The brown trout was 80 cm long and was released immediately after the photo was taken. You wonder where it was caught? Look at the river.
