Traditionally our second day of fishing is reserved for Sava Bohinjka.

After a short night we went to this beautiful river to see how has changed since our last visit. Water level was low that´s why the fishes were very cautious and diffident to our flies. We had more success in faster parts of the river on dry flies. The biggest impression was given by the grayling population, because we saw a lot of graylings bigger than 40 centimeters. We caught some of them during afternoon when they started to rise. They were interested on micro dry flies tied on hooks #20-24, with the terminal line of 0,10. They really made our day fantastic.

After this visit I can make a good advice: anybody who is interested to fish on Sava Bohinjka, now is the time to visit it!

The construction of the new rod is in it´s critical phase. Now it must be planed into the final cone form. Before planing the rod must by dry, and for this reason must be dried in a “rod oven” on 190 degrees celsius for 20 minutes. With drying it becomes stronger and more resistant in time.

Once it is dry, it should be planed into the final form as soon as possible and glue together, so that doesn´t accumulate humidity.

For this operation we need a special stencil on wich we can regulate the depth of the strip. This operation is very time-consuming and requires patience and a very sharp planer. After this phase is done we can glue the strips together into the final hexagonal shape.  But that will be explained in the next post…
