Bosnia – October 2023

The Bosnian rivers are alive with grayling, brown & rainbow trout that throughout the summer months feed freely on the surface on the many upwing insects that hatch on the rivers. Rivers such as the Pliva, Ribnik and Sanica offer crystal clear chalkstream-like water where the fish are easily seen although they can scrutinise each fly offered to them. These are exciting dry fly waters where you can target fish for long periods of time whilst trying the beautifully made local fly patterns.

In September and October these rivers can be experience clouds of blue winged olives, these great hatches can bring even the biggest trout and grayling to feed on the surface.

Once again this Autumn we have a group of anglers returning to these wonderful rivers in search of large brown trout and grayling on tiny dry flies.
