FOR THE END OF THE SEASON - A 116ER!,
13.2.2019 Just this afternoon and tomorrow and 2018-2019 awesome Hucho-Hucho fishing season closes the doors! Too bad, we have had so much fun it could easily be prolonged for another month!! But the law is the law.. Glad we could post one of the nicest catches just for the closing down - what a better end to fire us all for the new opening with November this year! Can`♠t wait!!
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
SUICIDE WEATHER - GREAT!,
1.2.2019 FEBRUARY 1st... rainy day, drizzle and snow in between... fking nightmare and depression making recipe.. BUT NOT IF YOU ARE A HUCHO FANATIC!!!! Hahaha... Fauna Fly Shop, just closed the doors this morning, taking Luca from the Lodge out there on the cold since this kind-a weather you just HAVE TO BE THERE on the Sava Bohinjka! And not without a reason fingers were frozen!! Beautiful 110-er grabbed the streamer when the 1st day light emerged!! After the release I just popped to the Fauna fly shop for 10min. to upload you still fresh images! I have not time to make the video live, will do it later - NOW I RUN BACK!

HUCHO GUIDES WARMING UP,
31.1.2019 Hucho Guides warming up!! Why it seems so easy for a good Hucho Guide to land those damn Huchos!? Luck? A little.. Skills and knowledge of the river? 80% yes.. A message from our hucho Guides to you, respected followers, Hucho fans and fanatics: Once you "break the ice" and land your first few Huchos, you start to comprehend what in fact Hucho fishing is all about - observing, monitoring, having TOP CLASS gear ready and when the time is right - one cast is enough.. sounds simple? Hihi.. Thanks Dejan, lets meet this Friday on the river - Goong good conditions forecast!!
YOUTH TAKES OVER HUCHO FISHING!,
30.1.2019 Generations are ageing.. me myself along... and while the Youth are more and more indoors, staring into various square screens, forgetting there is another world our there - some do not walk that path.. That makes us, adult Hucho anglers very happy! There will be new generations taking over this noble game when our hands will be too old to rise up the fly rods. BUT THAT WILL NOT BE HAPPENING SO SOON!!!!!!!!! As long as we can crawl to the river - we will be fishing it! And to the young Hucho hunter Max - big congratulations for your 112-er!!!!! Started the hucho Odyssey in such a way? can be happening only on the Sava Bohinjka river! what will follow?
Fishing for Hucho is on fire - weather is jolly good for the sport - cloudy with often interruptions of light snow or drizzle.. river level keeps low and clear to semi-clear - hohoho.... every Hucho hunter - read between the lines :-) TWO MORE WEEKS remain opening, the Teams for the Grand finale emerging - lets wait for more news to come shortly!
SNOW, SNOW, HUCHO ON THE GOOOWW,
24.1.2019 Midst of the January finally brought a winter story on the river banks of the Sava Bohinjka! White and green of the river are a drop-dead combination to land the EU No.1 fishing prise - the Hucho! While this season was low with the levels, fly rods winning ahead of the spinning Teams - but hey - the time for the spin to strike a bit back! AL being a master in both classes, can easily choose with which tackle to land the Hucho... Oil is on the fire while the season leaning into the last third!! New Teams already on the way, locals preparing attacks too - great, since there will be more to post for sure soon! Stay tuned!
