Hello Dada, I`m from Turkey and living in Norway now. Smile
There is a lot of beautiful places in Turkey for FlyFishing. An example Blacksea Coasts (Karadeniz) you can catch Seatrouts. In West Turkey Aegean Sea; between Bodrum and Selcuk there is big rivers for trouts.
My Favorit place is the "Abant Lake" between Bolu and Düzce called 7 Rivers-Trouts-Paradise !
Here, I found a page for you, A to Z Fish types of saltwater and freshwater in Turkey.

Yeah, sounds like a good plan.

And if you're down this way, drop me a line and I can guide you to the big one's Laughing

So have you had any big ones recently. I've had loads of 500g and the biggest around 1.3kg. There was a 3kg sea trout caught about an hour after I had fished the same place, typical!

Dear Dada, you can look in Google-Earth
Summer Time and all saisons works very well ! But take all your FlyFishing equipment with you, its too expensive there Smile

Latitude: 40° 1'9.14"N
Longtitude: 31°38'35.87"E

Off course there is SAFE ! You are not in Iraq Very Happy There is no different between where you live now and Turkey Smile

Hý Dada

I believe I can help you out with your inquiries regarding trouts of Turkey. I am residing in Turkey and have fished trout in most parts. Feridun has actually guýded you to one of the popular areas of Turkey; the Abant lake. Its an alpine natural lake located north western part which actually Prosek mentiones in its book. Its an endemic one ( only found in this lake ) and grows to sizes up to 60-70 cm, only one of many beutiful trouts found in Turkey. You can actually make better use of the Prosek s book regarding trouts
of Turkey, which I d highly advise if youd like to learn more about them.

By the way, please keep in mind that there arent any extraordinary safety problems in Turkey. There are only localized security problems in the south east from time to time similiar to those that occurred in Spain and Ýreland in the past. So be confident in that matter.

May you have any further questions, I ll do my best to answer them
