Tržiška Bistrica river never let you down

Me and a friend of mine had a very nice dry fly action at Tržiška Bistrica last Sunday.
When we came to the river we saw that waterlevel was really low. So first we tried some nimphing but after some casts we changed for a dry fly – stimulator. That really work just perfect that day, so we caught many brown trouts and some rainbows. We lost big fish app 60 cm, which took a stimulator also. We still managed to catch nice rainbow app 50 cm.

Good flyfishing, welcome.

Excellent flyfishing in hot summer weather

Previous weekend we fished 2 days. First day we spend time on Soča and Bača river, second day we fished Bača and Kneža river in the morning than we moved to Sava river same day.
At Soča river we fished mostly with dry flies – stimulators(grasshopers) and fish were striking stimulators like crazy. We mostly caught rainbow trouts. In the afternoon we moved to Bača river where we fished for marble trout with nimphs. We caught one app. 35 cm and we lost one app. 45 cm.
Next day we started early in the morning at Bača river. When we came to the river, I spotted marble trout app.  45 cm taking dry flies. Without hesitation i tied stimulator. It was difficult to cast precisely so first cast was bad, because stimulator felt on the surface just 1,5m behind the marble trouts back, but for our big surpise a marble trout turned around and took a stimulator without hesitation…wowww!!!
Next marble we caught at Kneža river. I saw it standing on a shallow sandy pool. We sneek behind th rock and when we were ready we casted a nimhp. It happened the same as before…marble trout took it without hesitation. We landed in our net app. 50 cm long marble trout. Just perfect!
In the afternoon we did 2 hours  ride from Bača river to Sava river. Actually we were running for graylings. When we came there it was 2.00 in the afternoon. We spotted graylings from the bridge taking dry flies. I tied red tag. First cast and …take! We landed app 40 cm grayling in our net.

That was perfect flyfishing…see you soon!

Hiking and climbing mountain Škrlatica

 On Saturday we did one of the toughest hike in Slovenia – Škrlatica 2740 meters above the sea level, 1800m of ascent.  Officially paths up to the top and back down would take you 12 hours, but we did it in 7,5hours that day. At first the path is quite easy, walking trough the forest. After 2 hours of walking  you come to the high walls and balvans, than the climbing area starts via ferrata.

There is no mouintain hut on a top, and there is no spring for fuelling your plastic bottels  with water so you really need to take app. 4 liters of water with you. That is why Škrlatica is so tough but the views on a top are just fantastic . We were deeply touched by the beauty of sorrounding mountains. We had a realy nice weather and a great day.

Graylings from Sava river
Sava river is largest river of Slovenia. I prefer fishing in the upper parts of Sava river where it has some really long runs whit rock and shallows and deep pools on the other side.  For me personaly the most enjoyable flyfishing is for graylings. They are good challange, because their takes are so fast. Ussually you have only  one second to strike it in time… For sure the best is when they take dry flies, but also with nimph is fun. With nimphs we use »chech style nimphing« , so short line.

Come and try luck.

Nice fishing in a hot weather

When hot weather we ussually do not expact good fishing. But this time we have chosen 2 rivers for best flyfishing. We fished Sava Dolinka upper part and Sava river.  At upper parts of Sava Dolinka the river current is realy fast and water temperatures are quite low, just perfect for hot weather. Fish was active also on a surface, so we fished with dry fly. Red tag was number one that day. We caught also some brown trouts with nimphs. Next day at Sava river we fished for graylings, which were also active on surface, so we enjoyed dry fly action.

Flyfishing in summer time

We are getting summer time in Slovenia which means warm weather with temperatures up to 33-35 degrees Celzius.

Fishing during warm weather can be quite tough during the day so we mostly pay attention to early morning and lately afternoon hours when we mostly fish with dry fly if there is a good hatch, otherwise we fish with nimphs.

For those who are more in streamer flyfishing there is a chance but only after the rain, when milky water or higher water level.

Anyway in summer time we search and fish some colder rivers or some alpine creeks which are ussually reaching  teperatures of water inbetween 15-17 degrees Celzius. Those are Sava river, Soča river, Radovna river, Kokra river.
