Baltic Salmon Fly Fishing Secrets
There are about 3000 rivers and rivulets flowing in Lithuania but only 18 of them are longer than 100 km, 733 hardly exceed 10 km in length. The grayling and brown trout are two of the most beautiful species of fresh water fish in our waters. They live in the rivers of the south east of the country – Neris, Žeimena, Merkys, Ūla, Salčia, Gauja, Veknė and others. It is a wonderful group of rivers with cold water and impetuous black-waters. Most of the rivers are fed by springs, running through forest land and inhabited by grayling and brown trout. In autumn the rivers are a very good place for Baltic salmon and sea trout. Local wild populations of fish prevail in the rivers because the Lithuanian rivers are not stocked with artificially bred grayling and brown trout.
The Lithuanian history of fly-fishing isn’t very old, as it has only been known in the country for 100 years. Nevertheless, there exist some local traditions and original fishing flies. The first Lithuanian book on fishing called “Fishing Sport” by V.Goštautas was published in 1939, and the author mentions fly-fishing and presents a short description. There were very few articles on fly-fishing published in our country during the years of Soviet power, and it is only for the last 20 years that fly-fishing has become increasingly popular.
