Lim is one of the largest rivers in Montenegro. It flows out from Plavsko Lake and in Montenegro flows through four cities: Plav, Andrijevica, Berane and BijeloPolje; in the neighboring country of Serbia, it passes through the towns of Prijepolje and Priboj. At the end, Lim flows into the Drina River and is its largest tributary. Andrijevica is a small town in the northeast of Montenegro situated at the foot of the mountain Komovi. The largest part of the Lim River and its tributaries that belong to this municipality is intended only for fly fishing, according to catch and release regulation.
