Thanks for sharing those pictures Alex!
I will fish anywhere and find beauty in it.

Many thanks for your comments! Myself and two of my fishing bodies decided to fish the locations where the World Fly Fishing Championship will be take place in 2015.
We found warm hospitality, reasonable prices,  but extremely "difficult" waters!

I used dry flies on the rises, and my friends, both experience anglers,  used tungsten and bras nymphs. We did some tying on location, but in general we had a "humiliating" experience, as  we never found the right imitations.  The trout caught were small, few and far in between. Instead we found plenty of Danubian graying.  One word of caution:  stay away from Slivovitz  ;)

Find any displaced land mines?

 :)

Those are clear waters.  Did you run into any other anglers?

only a few Germans!  Bosnia is remote and is not easily accessible!
