After some years I went to Unica river this September. Sunny day with low water first indicated that we would struggle to get a fish, but at the end of the day we counted more than 10 fishes per person. Most of the success came from dry flies tied on hooks 16-20#. We had more success in faster parts of the river where graylings weren´t so demanding. Trough the day I had some line breaks with decent fish on, and so was for Martin. He succeeded to catch a beautiful brown trout of 50 cm. Bigger graylings started to rise only before the dark, and some of them were caught and then released.

I hope to visit this magnificent river as soon as possible.

Hello everyone

In Slovenia 1. april means the start of fly fishing season on mostly all rivers. Like all years I spend this day on my Vipava river. This year I was skeptical about fishing quality because we didn´t have any considerate rain or snow and the water level was very low and the bottom was full of algae and moss. I started on sunrise and finished on midday. It was very windy and very cold and I was without a wind stopper (what a cold I have today)… Despite the cold weather I was warmed by fishes I caught. Rainbow, grayling, brown and marble trout were in my net in various number and were released as soon as possible. I tried to avoid to catch graylings, because they are now in spawning season.  I surprised some of them (one was longer than 45 cm) but I had one bite instead.

In one pool I had a fish of the day. A beautifull marble of 55 cm took my streamer and made my day complete. Full of adrenaline and memories I decided that was enough and went home.
