Just a 90 minute flight from the UK, Slovenia is one of the premier European game angling destinations. The breadth and variety of the fly fishing on offer in Slovenia has to be seen to be believed, but with such a huge amount of water a guide can be essential to make the most of a trip to this most beautiful of countries. Uros Kristan owns Urko Adventures and provides top class guided trips not only on the world renowned Slovenian rivers but also those less well known too. The rich waters are not only home to the game species we’re familiar with in the UK but also to the revered Marble Trout and Danube Salmon or the European Taimen.
