Beetles buck the trend:


Whilst the rivers Ribnik and Pliva are reputed for their small, delicate dry flies, occasionally, it can be worth trying something totally different.  I’d actually found that Bosnian trout and grayling had a fondness for a large tan Klinkhamer run down fast flowing pools.  Kris Kent went one better, by using a large, brash beetle.  To his amazement, some large brown trout came looking for a meal when the offending fly “plopped” in the water.
