This is the river in Western Serbia, near the town of Užice. Upper part of the river, just few kilometers from the town, is very clean and clear, so the present fish-specieas are Grayling, Brown trout and Huchen.
Djetinja runs through a gorge, but very approachable. The small road goes along the river.
Along the road you will find benches, garbage cans and sources of drinking water. In that, this is one of the best flyfishing stretch in Serbia.
Djetinja is very suitable for fly fishing. It is easy wadeable, with plenty of diverse positions and conditions to cast a fly. There are lot of quiet pools, but also rapids. Average depth of the river is about 70cm and width is maximum 15m. Deepest pools are up to 3m deep.
Djetinja is excellent for dry fly fishing, but also for nymphing and streamers.
Brown trout is the oldest fish here, but huchen and grayling are introduced several years ago. Graylings already reach the trophy size and huchens are present in every pool. They are not so big, because the river is too small for that big predator, but specimens about 80cm are not rare.
It was awesome fly fishing summer 2014. in Plav!
Fly fishing for huchen, grayling, trout, chub, pike, nase…it was like a dream…
I will not waste words – Let’s just take a look at the short gallery!

Long, deep and beautiful
The famous Montenegrin river Tara dug the second-deepest canyon in the world, 80 km long and 1333 m deep. Besides, this river is not famous just by huge rocks around but also by the gin-clear water. Due to the incredible beauty, river Tara and this canyon are protected by law and UNESCO.
The Tara Canyon is in middle to lower part of the river Tara in northern Montenegro. It is part of the Durmitor National Park.
Tara is medium-size freestone river with an average width of 30 m. During the summer, at lowest water level, it is suitable for wading in many places. Besides to the deep pools there are many shallows, and nearby fast riffles there is always some quiet part of the stream.
Fish & Fly Fishing
Tara is populated almost exclusively with wild Salmonids, brown trout, grayling and huchen. Fly fishing in this clear and cold river is sometimes easy, but not always. Let’s say that Tara Canyon is not a rich fishery for newborn flyfishers, but the place for experienced adventurers and anglers.
Precisely balanced tackle, light tippets (0.10 – 0.14mm) and small tiny flies (#14-20) are recommended, especially for Tara’s grayling.
Brown trout is here also highly selective and wary too, but size of the fly can be a little bit bigger (#10-16).
Nymphists can enjoy lot of styles, but also very interesting and exciting nymphing-on-sight. Simply, nymphist can see his prey in incredibly clear water and lead the nymph to it, watching fish reaction.
Of course, there is opportunity of streamer fishing. Besides the popular brown trout, there is a mighty Danube-taimen, the huchen. In this canyon they are not so big as in Mongolia, but in almost every pool can be found a specimen of 5-10 kg.
Hello, Fly Fishing World!
My name is Ivan Ranđelović. I am professional fly fishing guide and fly casting instructor. I live in Serbia, the city of Niš and work throughout the whole EX Yugoslavia.
I entered the sport in 1986. and since then I appear in many TV shows, found and lead a fly fishing club, organize many ff meetings, competitions, fly tying contests, publish many articles and one book, guide, teach and involve into the sport many fly fishers, moderate web-sites, won few ff competitions, promote fly fishing, pass the IFFF Fly Casting Instructor exam, catch many fish-species on a fly, invent flies, learn so much about entomology…
Briefly, so many interesting things in many years.
All these years, I go fly fishing and guiding all the time, all seasons and all types of fresh water, about 250 days a year.
I am not selective on fish-species. I consider them all equally interesting if caught on fly. Trout, grayling, huchen, chub, asp, pike, barbel, rudd, perch, roach, wels…
I’m also not selective on types of freshwater. Rivers, streams, lakes, ponds…I know how to enjoy them all and how to present them to all my guests.
