Slovenia – Tolmin Angling Association

English

Tolmin Angling Association was established in 1947 by 21 members. The number of members varied during our history. Last 10 years it is rather stabile from 430 to 450 members and around 30 young members.

Tolmin Angling Association is managing Tolmin fishing area, this is 138 km (433,6 ha) of fishing rivers and 107 smaller streams in upper Soča catchment in Slovenia.

The most important game fish are the Marble trout and the grayling. They attract a lot of fly fishing tourists, which spend 6 -8 thousand fishing days, around 60% of all fishing days in our area.

Through the Fish Trail project Tolmin Angling Association will carry out a fishing festival which will upgrade our traditional Marble trout festival. We will make 5 fishing films which will the past, presence and importance of fishing activities in our area.

We are convinced that our and other partner’s activities in the project will significantly contribute to better promotion and recognition of our area as an important fishing destination.

Ribiška družina Tolmin je bila ustanovljena leta 1947. Ustanovilo jo je 21 članov. Število članov se je v njeni zgodovini spreminjalo. Zadnjih 10 let pa imamo 430 – 450 članov in okoli 30 mladincev.

Ribiška družina Tolmin gospodari s Tolminskim ribiškim okolišem, ki obsega 138 km (433,6 ha) ribolovnih voda in 107 manjših potokov v zgornjem porečju reke Soče v Sloveniji .

Najpomembnejši ribolovni vrsti rib sta soška postrv in lipan, ki privabita k nam veliko ribiških turistov, muharjev. Ti letno opravijo pri nas od 6000 – 8000 ribolovnih dni, kar predstavlja približno 60% vsega športnega ribolova pri nas.

V okviru projekta Fish Trail bomo v Ribiški družina Tolmin izpeljali ribiški festival, ki bo nadgradil naš običajni festival Soške postrvi. Posneli bomo 5 promocijskih filmov o ribolovu v preteklosti, sedanjosti in o njegovem pomenu za lokalno okolje.

Prepričani smo, da bomo skozi naše aktivnosti in aktivnosti vseh partnerjev v projektu bistveno prispevali k promociji in prepoznavnosti našega področja kot pomembne ribiške destinacije.
