Do you have any informtion about fly fishing in Turkey or Greece? Ive read book written by Joe Prosek and I saw there a plenty of trout spieces in these countries. Iam very interesting to visit them with my fly rod. So do you know anythink about it?

Hello Dada, I`m from Turkey...

Hello Dada, I`m from Turkey and living in Norway now. :)
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.

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

ishing season for trout in Turkey is between 1 April - 1 October ) . And for the Eastern Black sea ( North ) region, its best to fish during August to October.

Hope this will suffice

Fly fishing in Turkey...

Hey Burkala,

I hope to go to Turkey, Antalya in the middle of October this year. Is it not legal to fish trout in the period after October 1? And if it's legal, do you know where it's good to fish in the area?

Thanks, and kind regards

in Turkey. Altough there are'nt much strict control, its appropriate to attain one may you face a official person. As for the locations, a can advise you the upper reaches of Dim and Manavgat streams. They are all turqouise streams where you can find lots of rainbow trouts.( all fugutives of fish farms ) But ýf you want to fish natural browns, you need to contact the locals or fishing companys, or I may be of help if I can arrange some spare time. You can contact me in person and I'll do my best when the time comes

Feridun,
Seeing that you are living in South Norway have you ever fished in Egersund. Any thoughts?
