SLOVENIAN FLY FISHING NEWS,
FLY FISHING IN THE SUN,
18.10.2017 Almost determined to declare October of a winning fly fishing month in 2017 fly fishing season! Ending the second week with a supreme sun, temperatures up to 20 degrees and of course - dry fly fishing! Steady air pressure with almost no winds keeping the leaves on the trees.. late morning and mid day is the best time to be out on the rivers.. EXCEPT if you are targeting some thing larger.. than one needs to wait till the later day hours when - even if no strong hatch - larger trout might come out to grab a fly or two for the dinner. And no more than that.. interesting situation.. much different than on the typical fly fishing months..
SUNSHINE AND WARM WEATHER,
11.10.2017 INDIAN SUMMER still lasts on the wider area of Slovenia`s fly fishing grounds! Day time seems to be the best moment to be out there on the river.. if the last week, small patterns of dry flies were working best, now fish is striking on larger flies! Terrestrials, larger hairy dries, chernobil patterns etc. are a good choice! Like the fish would be feeling that the fly soup won`t be there for ever and the November will have poor offer of insects on the surface..
SUN, SUN, SUN AND FLYFISHING!,
9.10.2017 After September being a record-breaker in bad and un-fishable weather/water, seems like October is trying his most to correct that image!? Lovely sunny weather and clear rivers are the current situation of nord-western part of Slovenia.. most productive are middle hours of the day when a short stone fly hatch plecotera hatch can be expected. late afternoons are nothing special, first colder breeze will kill the action down, so make sure you do not loose day time with some lunch or other non-senses :-) Sunny weather is about to last at least till the next weekend! Jupeyy - says the author :-D
IN THE CANYONS OF THE SAVA BOHINJKA,
5.10.2017 From the last days of September when the brown trout merges with the beautiful colours of the autumn nature.. skilled angler`s hand used to treat fish in a manner they deserve.. farewell browny, till we meet again :-)
LET IT LAST!!,
4.10.2017 Apart of coming Friday October 6th we do not see a major rain or similar fly fishing problems on the horizon! Fly fishing in general is good and fish reasonably active. Small nymphs of darker shades and ephemeras on #16 #18 must be in your fly boxes if it happens you are visiting us in the nearby future. Focus should be set on the Sava Bohinjka river (any of 3 sectors) or the Radovna river.. while Sava Dolinka is still milky white from September`s rain.. consequentially also Big Sava river is white.. too bad, since we were hoping for some great autumn grayling fly fishing down there... well, still a large part of the October left for the waters of the Big Sava to recover in colour.
FINALLY A GOOO! ON THE LEVELS,
27.9.2017 Just for you - visited all 3 fishing sectors of the Sava Bohinjka today, found them all having fishable levels... some might find those levels 4-5 cm higher than normal - but those should stay at home :-) From us - a clear GO! on fly fishing for the coming end of week! also weather seems to be cooperative with us... after weeks and weeks of the rain - we can not really ask for more :-)
