Fly Fishing - Fly Tying - Film Festival - Burgers & Beer
River Idrijca, jewel of the region, embedded in the history of local environment, industry, and people. And in the depths of River Idrijca lies one of the biggest treasures of fish evolution, a unique predator famed for its pattern, size, and especially cautious character. The ultimate challenge for any avid fly fisherman - Marble Trout type Idrijca. We dubbed it Idrijska Trout. It is for this trout that this festival exists - to protect its rivers, environment of the entire region, and to protect Idrijska Trout itself.
Welcome to a festival devoted to water, rivers, environment, and to Idrijska Trout.

This year we are launching an independent film festival focused on fly fishing and rivers. Film festival is open to submission from all film producers & film makers and all submissions are FREE. Yes, 100% FREE! You can submit your film over Film Festival Life banner below, where you can read also all the submission conditions.
We encourage committed filmmakers to submit via FilmFestivalLife. With monthly subscriptions and pro accounts FilmFestivalLife is the smartest way to save money with a strategic approach. Join the platform where award-winning filmmakers and quality festivals meet.
Our festival is proud to support and spread the wise words, principles and tips of KeepEmWet movement. Catch & Release (C&R) might seem a trivial thing, but the scientific evidence has defined plenitude of deeds that hamper the survival chance of fish that are caught, handled, photographed, and released if the above is mal-practised.
That is why we want to share the vision of founder of #KeepEmWet Bryan Huskey and we strongly endorse what they preach.
For more information on how keep the fish wet and alive after you have caught them visit the official movement website KEEPEMWET.
