    Default Serbian rivers

    Here in Serbia there are a lot of small rivers, few bigger like Lim and Drina. On most rivers population of trout is not very good. This is because people here like to take every fish. But some rivers are controled so there are less stealing. One of them is Gradac. River aproximately 12km long. Upper part is full of fish, average is about 25-30cm, but there are lot bigger fish, up to 60-70cm, but they are rarely caught, maybe once a year.
    Here season starts on march and ends in september. At the beggining of the season water levels are often high,due to snow melting. We can fish in march, but mostly on nymphs and streamers. If the water is low and clear than even in march there is surface action. Best time is of coarse end of april, may, june and july...waterlevel is perfect, fish are hungry and nature is beautifull. Late season, august and september are characteristic by low water, fish are very carefull, they keep in shade and riffles, on such conditions we have often selective fish. than as now we have time to write on forums and talk fishing stories

    Gradac:

    this flat behind me is full of fish, there fish is difficult to catch, most takes are on the opposite bank under trees.



    some fish can be caught on a very odd flies such as coffeebean fly(its made of real bean)



    some fish like this one prefer presentation (for me presentation is crucial)



    this is the fly it took

    there are few places to stay there, price is from 7 to 20euros(with two meals), depending on what you need.

    i am about 80km from this river so i rarely stay overnight...

    Very nice looking streams.

    One day, when I have enough time on my hands, I plan to travel and fly fish my way from Northern Italy, through Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, Bulgaria and end up in Northern Greece.

    So it is encouraging to see your photos and to know what lies in store in Serbia. Thanks.
