SLOVENIAN FLY FISHING NEWS,
MID MARCH FLY FISHING SLOVENIA,
18.3.2019 Hey all! Sorry for keeping you less updated, but in March we do not run to the river just every day.. would burn-out the quota of the fishing permits before the true Fly fishing season in Slovenia even kicks in haha! But how could we fly fisherman seat in the office and not go on to the river!! Impossible! As such, we planned a good fishing day on the Sava river, expecting some average catch - nothing like that happened! I mean nothing like the average catch :-) Levels were strong (on the image is just a smaller channel of the complete river) but if you know where to set your nymph - the fish is there! Small pockets along the main stream is what you should target! Nymphs to use are small but heavy.. Trout is down and nibbling for some small food close to the bottom.. Leader can still be 5X even 4X to make sure you do not lose some nice bite out there! End of the coming week SEEMS TO BE A VERY NICE FISHING WEATHER so do not stay foot - move and land the fish! >>>>>
2019 FLY FISHING DAY NO.1,
2.3.2019 Nice spring-like weather for the opening day of the two rivers, Radovna and so called Big Sava lured out several anglers, wanting to shake off the dust from the fly rods! Fishing conditions were nice, temperatures ok, levels fine on both rivers. Fish was not so active due to the week snow melt triggered by higher daily temperatures. But in general all the visiting fly fisherman were content.. Dry fly did not work well yet, most of the job was done by nymphs. Smaller sizes better than larger ones.. Stay tuned, we will be following the evolution of the season and post new reports soon... More images available on the link below:

SAVA BOHINJKA DROPPING - GET READY!,
5.2.2019 The one who follow the Fishing situation on the Sava Bohinjka river know, that we had have a blast of rain on February 2nd-3rd.. After almost two month of draught, levels jumped up and grounded us inside for a couple of the days... As of today, river is getting back to normal, having bottom washed up and becoming gin-clear! A total reset of the Hucho fishing conditions it was!! Let us see what will that result out... Teams getting ready for the ends of the week and the weekend upcoming! REMEMBER, 10 ONLY FISHING DAYS LEFT! To warm you up, here is the Movie of the last catch, enjoy the footage, share the feelings and we hope your working day will be a bit easier! There are strong and pristine emotions involved in the Hucho Fishing... every single pain and suffer gets so well repay once the rod bends down to the handle! Don`t believe? Come and try! :-D
