Flyfishing in Side
Hi Elliot, I am a keen fly angler here in Wales and I have a place in Side. The only angling I have seen are the locals [they fish for food] who bait fish from the harbour breakwater and others at the Manavgat river which also has trout farming cages. Dont forget you need a licence which is about 150 Lira for visitors, only 10 for locals, this put me right off.[there was a long thread on this some time ago] There are a few tackle shops in Manavgat but no fly tackle.There are loads of rivers and a huge reservoir in the hills above Manavgat which could possibly be an untapped treasure trove for fly anglers although I do not know what fish they hold. Its very difficult to find out anything as I dont speak Turkish.
regards Phil
