Wild Brown Trout, Serbia

I am back from visiting my old home streams. Here are some pics of wild browns of Eastern Serbia (Eastern Danubian variety/ancient and unique haplogroup), and the stream. Chalky water and perfectly camouflaged fish, who fight incredibly well for their small size. All were caught on large mayfly and sedge dry fly patterns. This kind of fishing requires patience and precise casts in tree-lined tunnels surrounding the small stream. The trout are overfished and wary, while the hatches are prolific and diverse. You would usually get only one or two casts before your target disappears.
