Published "on the occasion of the 110th anniversary of the first Zagreb Fishing Society 1894-2004, and the 111th anniversary of organised sport fishing in Croatia, 1893-2004". A fascinating account of trout fishing in various parts of Croatia with many good photographs. Essential reading for anyone intending to visit this part of the Adriatic, not to mention those who haven't thought of going there yet. Much on the various species of salmonids to be found in Croatia, especially marbled trout and soft-lipped trout, and a great deal on the rare species of fish and on the natural history of the limestone caves, sink-holes and underground rivers of the region. Although grayling and huchen are mentioned, they are to be the subject of the next volume in this proposed series. *Only 180 copies of the English language edition were printed. Each one carries a bookplate signed by the author and stating the limitation.
