If you are new to fly-fishing, you can enjoy learning and improving your fishing abilities on the Sava Bohinjka or Radovna rivers.
If you are an expert, you can test your stalking and rivercraft skills on the challenging Soca, Tolminka or Idrijca rivers.
Slovenia also offers natural chalk streams on the Krka and Unec, famed for their brown trout and trophy grayling. Species diversity is the name of the game in Slovenia: you can expect to catch brown trout, rainbow trout, grayling, brook trout, ‘Danube’ salmon, or even the elusive and mysterious marble trout -THE trademark of Slovenian fly fishing!
All our holidays are tailormade. Here we have prepared a suggested 7-day package (5 fishing days), which can be altered to your requirements. It offers a round trip with fishing every day on a different river starting with the less challenging Sava with its tributaries (Sava Bihinjka,Radovna, Bistica,) that runs near lake Bled. And when you get used to techniques, we change location to the more demanding Soca with its tributaries and will be based in the charming town of Kobarid. Making this a nice circular trip to minimize morning drives and maximize fishing opportunities.
