This year is really strange. It rains and rains and it doesn´t seem that it will stop. The average water level of Vipava river is twice as normal…

Last afternoon I decided to go fishing soon after a big storm ended. I went to Vipava catch&release part and had a really great time. The moisture was very high and I was quick all wet.  First I started with some nymph and had some bytes, but as it become darker the fishes started to rise very intensively. Small mayflies were the first to emerge, so I used F-fly. tied on hook #16. After this also caddis fly started to emerge so I tied some CDC elk tied on #14 hook, but the best was about to happen…  Huge number of big mayflies filled the air, the trees and the bushes all around the river. Fishes rose like crazy (even jumping out of the water) and it was like in a fairytale. I fished with big CDC mayflies on hook #10 and I caught almost all species that can be found in this salmonid part. Most of them were graylings.

Like always the second day of our Bled fly-fishing trip belong to Sava Bohinjka

The water level was extremely high for fly-fishing, but despite all the fishes managed that we had a really great day. Most of the day I used dry-flies tied with CDC. Until midday the sky was clear, but soon after it become cloudy and started to rain. It rained untill the night, but didn´t influenced the fish activity. It also become very cold so it was like in spring.

As the day went along the flies hatch changed almost every hour but we still managed to have the appropriate flies. As the night approached (with us being all wet) we decided that it was enough for that day…

P.S. We had a funny experience that day. We met a group of very peculiar italian fishermen (with the best equipment), have a few words. After that we sat on a river bank and had a break with Guerila wine and watched them being envious. What a laugh…

Do you imagine the day where every thing is against you or goes wrong? This happened to me last sunday on Vipava river.

It was a cloudy afternoon and I went to “catch and release” part. The water was a little higher than normal, clean and cold. Fishes were active on the surface and on the bottom. I started with a big nymph and had at least 5 bites but without any realisation. Than I changed to smaller nymph and the story repeated. Again I changed the nymph to even smaller size and realized one brown trout. Than I tried with a CDC dry-fly to catch any graylings who were rising, and yet the same story: byte without realisation… Like I was a rookie!!!

Under one bush I had a big wild rainbow on but it break the line and the day went “even better”. At the end of the fishing I catched two graylings and went back home.

I didn´t count how many bites I had that day, but I am sure it was more than 20, with only 3 fishes in my net. Let´s hope I will improve my score next time…

It all started in 2008, when I decided to go to Bled to have two-day fishing holidays (first day on Radovna and second on Sava Bohinjka). Of course it was a complete success.

Every year it happened the first weekend of August. No exception was this year. The only thing that changed since the first time was the number of colleagues that have gone with me. This year we were in seven! Maybe a little too much for a small stream like Radovna, but still manageable. Everybody had enough space to fish on every location we stopped.

We started at the beginning of the district. The water level was lower, crystal clear and cold (9 degrees centigrade). We saw a lot of trees in the riverbed (last autumn flood consequence) and less fishes as usual. But more we went downstream more were the catches. Small brownies were becoming more and more frequent on our nymphs.

With midday we changed position and with brownies we have caught also rainbows. Fishes became active on the surface, so nymphs were changed with dry-flies. Some cdc flies were irresistible to more and more fishes.

Hours run quickly and before night we moved to another position. The picture didn´t change, fishes were attacking our flies with  eagerness till we reached the end of the fishing district.

In conclusion I could say that in my point of view the river is 100% pure mind relax, with a lot of fishes and astonishing surroundings. What can a fisherman demand more?
