Enjoy the multi species fishing Sava offers
The Sava is the longest river in Slovenia, which begins when Sava Dolinka and Sava Bohinjka merge in the historic town of Radovljica. In consequence, its rapids are long, pools deep, and cascades are wide. It is also home to very big fish, as no year passes by when someone doesn’t catch a Huchen longer than 110 cm.
The fishing season runs all year round, except in the months of snowmelt when the fish are quite picky because of the abundance of food.
You will begin fishing in the morning when you will meet your guide at a pre-arranged spot or in front of your accommodation.
After a brief lecture on the most important things you have to look out for while fly fishing in Slovenia, you’ll begin with the fishing and during the day you’ll visit the best places on the river which are known to produce fish.
With the constant guidance and assistance of our guides, you’ll be prepared to catch some nice specimens of trout, grayling, or other types of fish residing in the river.
The trip will end in the late afternoon/evening time, with a smile on your face and a camera full of nice photos.
I’ve been fishing since I was 6. My favourite kind of fishing in young age was lake fishing, for carp and other lake species. Later, when I discovered the art of fly fishing, this technique took over and I’ve been a passionate fly fishing angler ever since. In my fishing career I’ve visited the majority of Slovenian rivers. As a competitor in the National fly fishing championship I’ve gained many experience and fished in difficult conditions on pressured waters. My top 3 rivers are Idrijca, Savinja and Soča
I am fishing since I was 3 years old and with age, my passion for fishing only got bigger. As a kid, I was learning about many fishing techniques, but with time, fly and spin fishing have become my favorite ways to spend time by the water. I spend more than 100 days in a year fishing on various venues, hence I know most of the rivers, creeks and lakes in Slovenia. My 3 favorite places are Soča, Sava Bohinjka and Idrijca. Nymphing is my number one technique I’m implementing whenever I can. I’m fluent in English and German.
I have an angling predispositions in my genes, since the whole myle part of the family have been passionate anglers. Where I come from, the waters are rich with fish and it wasn’t hard to get in love with the sport. in recent years I devoted my time to guiding, trying to show what rivers in my area have to offer. My favourite methods of fishing are fly and spin fishing. During my career I’ve caught some nice fish, among those are hucho 100+cm, pike 103cm and grayling 57cm.
I am Uroš from Kranj, and I have been very active in the Slovenian fishing scene since the age of five.
I have been a member of the fishing family for almost 20 years. Together with other members, we perform a lot of fishery and aquaculture work, which you can also see by appointment.
I fished in most of Slovenian lakes and rivers, but also some foreign ones.
In my youth, I participated in competitions, which I later gave up due to lack of time and remained fishing only for my own personal pleasure.
Now I would like to make all this knowledge and joy about fish and fishing available to others through guidance.
I catch all kinds of fish and I can also say that I am an expert of all fishing techniques: from bottom fishing as well as spin-fishing,
and fly fishing. The latter is closest to my heart, which is why it takes up most of my time throughout the year. I love dry-fly fishing and nymphing.
In recent years, I have also paid a lot of attention to hunting the king of our waters – the huchen.
There can be up to 3 people per guide, if there are more of you, your group will be assigned with 2 guides.
In case of rain we try to find a water that’s suitable for fishing, or postpone the trip. If there’s no other option, we return the money for the guiding.
You can bring all your equipment, not bring any at all or only bring some bits and pieces. We also provide the equiment rental service so we make it easier for you to plan your fishing in case you’re travelling by plane.
You will be assigned one of our guides, which are all experts on their fields, with years of experience in different waters across Slovenia. You can find out more about them in the guides section.
Fishing permits can be bought in a few bars or fishing shops by the river, but you cn also buy them online. However, we suggest you wait with the purchase of the licenses until the day of fishing and buy them together with a help of our guide. The prices of the fly fishing permits for Sava river vary depending on the section, they cost from 20 to 50€.
Of course, you can arrange with your guide to make one or more breaks in order to eat and drink. If you wish, you can also find a nearby restaurant and get a proper lunch, however in case you are fishing more remote locations it’s better to have some food and drink packed to go, so you just make a pause by the river.
Our guides always carry some flies around so you can buy them on the day of the fishing.
We can provide some proposals for you or make a reservation on your behalf.
