|Fly Fishing in Montenegro|
Montenegro is an unexplored fly fishing oasis in Europe!
Montenegro is small but picturesque country which, in addition to fishing tourism, offers numerous other possibilities, making it a suitable tourist destination for the whole family.
At the Tara River Canyon
Typical for every montenegrin river is that they are all very clear. Their water is literally gin-clear. In fact, for its clarity and incredible mixes of turquoise to emerald color in the deeper eddies, they are leading in Europe. Tara, Ljuča, Lim, Moraca Mrtvica, Zeta ... all these rivers are of pure incredible beauty. They are a salmonid heaven on Earth. Brown trout, grayling, Danube salmon, marbled trout and lake trout are widespread throughout Montenegro. So, it's a fly fishing paradise too.
Wild grayling (C & R)
Rivers of such clarity may require a specific approach to fly fishing. For success, you may need a fine equipment, presentation and flies. During summer months fish can be tippet-shy and selective. That is an additional challenge for fly fisherman. Often, fish are exclusively fed on tiny flies. But, don't worry, our guides are skilled fly tiers and experts for riverside entomology.
Best dry flies are Blue Winged Olive (in variety of body-colors and wing materials - CDC, poly wings...), Quills, Midges, Griffith's Gnat, Grizzly Palmer, Witch, Sulphur, Red Spinner, Sedges (various)...on hook sizes 12-20. Most useful hook size is # 16.
