This competition will be held on the river Sanica in Ključ, Sana in Ribnik, Pliva in Šipovo, Vrbas in Donji Vakuf and on the Pliva Lake near Jajce.
„The organization that involved engagement of the mayors of the five municipalities is very successful, and besides fishing it promotes tourism as well. In the last month, representatives of ten countries came to this area for training. This is a great promotion of our country, because there are only few rivers like this in the world. I visited a dozen World Championships, and trust me that this kind of water cannot be found anywhere. Everyone is amazed, and there is plenty of fish as well, “said Klepić.
