Sasa Gavrilovic


Sasa Gavrilovic is one of the best anglers and guides in Bosnia and Herzegovina. He was born in Gornji Ribnik, Bosnia and Herzegovina, where he started his angling career 25 years ago. Now he works as a guide at several angling destinations among which are the rivers Sana, Sanica, Una and Pliva, but his favourite is definitely the river Ribnik, at the banks of which he was born. He has mastered all fly-fishing techniques but his narrower speciality is dry fly fishing for grayling and trout. At the same time, Sasa works professionally at tying flies and is successful in it. His flies can be bought on all fishing sites along the rivers in former Yugoslavia, but they are the most popular on the waters of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Slovenia.
