In 2000 I founded Lustrik fishing adventures and professional guide in Slovenia and in other parts of Europe. Been enthusiastic fly fisherman and fly tier from age of 12. I combined love of fishing with tourist guiding to create Lustrik fishing guiding services. I feel truly privileged to be born and live in Slovenia, a country that can offer so wide a variety of fishing options, from gin clear alpine freestone streams to mysterious chalk streams. Love them all: from morning hatch; to nymphing during the day; to anticipating the evening hatch. Diversity is the name of the game in Slovenia: you can expect to catch brown trout, rainbow trout, grayling, brook trout, huchen (hucho hucho), and my personal favorite mysterious marble trout.
