The Fisherman's House, which stands on the site of an old dairy facility in the village of Kal-Koritnica near Bovec, is a meeting place for locals, a venue for events and training courses, and an interpretive centre for the fishing industry of Upper Soča Valley. It aims to support nature education programmes, raise awareness among residents and visitors, and train guides for guided tours on the themed trails along the Soča River.

The Fisherman's House brings together, educates, and maintains contact between the locals, heritage, nature, and visitors with the aim of preserving nature, especially the Soča River, the Soča trout and fisheries, and thus the heritage of Upper Soča Valley.

interactive exhibition

The interactive exhibition on the ground floor presents one of the most popular forms of sport fishing – fly fishing. The eight videos in the exhibition show fly fishing on the Soča River, which is the only permitted fishing method in the upper reaches of the Soča River. Visitors can fish for artificial fish in a small pool representing the native or indigenous fish species to the Soča River, i.e. the Soča trout and grayling.
