Start of the danube salmon season at Savinja river

Danube salmon season at Savinja started today on 1.November and it will last till 14. of February. The river is appropriate for flyfishing for hucho while river is not as wide as Sava river. Savinja river is besedes Sava Bohinjka one of best rivers for flyfishing on hucho.

So season started today, water level was low, and we had sun, we would call those conditions bad. But start of the season is always best and ussually bring some good fish, like today it brought us 104cm long hucho.

Congrats, and welcome!

Why is hirring a fishing guide is a key for best fishing?

Lots of times when people had already fished in Slovenia (with fishing guide) think that next time, when they come to the same spots that guide took them last season for example, would be the same (good) result. It might be but it is not always like it.

It depends of some facts, that would bring you success on a water. Ussally good fishing guide would take you to the spot where is no fishing preasure, so that spot is prommising and fish would not hesitate to take the fly or the lure that you casted.

So this is the KEY of best fishing in Slovenia. It is not the specific fly or lure, it is about the spot, it is about the approach to the spots…that is why you hire a best fishing guide.

Welcome to Slovenia and to fish with HIDDEN PATHS.

But for flyfishing for danube salmon there are 2 rivers appropriate, like Savinja river and Sava Bohinjka river. Savinja river opens danube salmon season on 1.11.2015, Sava Bohinjka 1.12.2015.

Folks do not miss season opening, when chances to catch a hucho are best.

Very enjoyable flyfishing with hidden paths

Recently we fished some attractive small alpine stream with in intact nature surrounding. We were walking upstream trough bigger rocks, balvans or narrow canyons, crossing green or emerald color of rivers. This is a place where time »stops«, so make sure your mobile is off because your everydays thinking will be off also.

During the upstream walk we fished with nimphs mostly, but suddenly we saw some hatching. We switched immediatly for a dry fly. We had so nice dry fly action in those hidden rivers, hidden from a fishermen, it was just like flyfishing those rivers for the very first comming there.

Amazing, that is all what we can just say!

Small streams – tenkara style paradise

In Slovenia, we have many small streams just appropriate for those »small stream freakz« who enjoy fishing alone in intact nature and tenkara style using some small nimph or dry fly.  I must admit that i am one of them. I like hidden spots, where you almost climb the rocks from one pool to another and searching for some wild brown or marble trout.

Those spots are just like you would return in time of your childhood, exploring really hidden places and fishing only with a wooden stick and 3 meteres of your fishing line…for sure best experience ever.

Flyfishing with hidden paths

In Slovenia we have many river just perfect for a flyfishing. But the last 5 years there is so much preasure by the fishermen  from all over the world, that some rivers can be overfished. Those rivers are Soča, Sava Bohinjka, Idrijca and some others. So you can imagine that fishing on those rivers is very difficult cause fish became so shy that they ignore nimphs and also dry flies, hatches are short like 10 minutes before the dark and so on…
So that is why we fish other rivers also nice green colored with very nice intact nature surrounding. We call it »hidden« rivers, which are mostly fished only by few locals fishermen. Flyfishing at those rivers is like a poetry. Fish are active almost the whole day, they are not shy, so they take nimph or dry very aggresive.

When we flyfish we flyfish with hidden paths.

Flyfishing as a primarily conection with nature

We, the people have survived thousands of years hunting and fishing for food. Actually is in our genes.
In the past hunting and fishing was just for survival, for the community we lived in, but now is more like searching for some outdoor experiences and reconnection with nature. I think that people search more like just being out there, than searching for trophies.
At the end of the day, actually it does not count how many fish did you catch or how big where they. All it counts is a story, made in a intact nature, majestic rivers or small creeks and of course moments of fish taking your flies.

It is best when you make story with us, the hidden paths.
