Hello everyone!
Here in Slovenia the fishing season is more and more influenced by the weather. We have a catastrophic dry season, which also results in low river water levels. In this period most of the fishermen would be in shadow drinking a cold beer – not me! Now is ideal to go fishing if you want to be alone and not to be bothered by others. For this reason we made a choice and went to river Unec, which is well-known for it´s grayling and brown trout. In this part of season is particularly hard to fish – ideal for extremists. Usage of long flourcarbon tippet with small flies is a necessity, slow approach to the water and long casts without any splashes on the surface are only half of success. Maybe even less.

Despite all, we had a good day of fishing.  Just to be in such a beautiful nature means a lot…

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?

This river is situated in central part of Slovenia. It is a small river with karstic characteristics. The main reason why i mention this river is it´s big grayling population. Here you can also find brown trout, rainbow trout and danube salmon. The river is relatively calm, with some rapids. Other characteristic of this river are red coloured stones, because of its specific chemical compounds.

Because of it´s size the best period for fishing is in spring with highier water level. Light gear, bamboo fly rods with small nymphs and dry flies are the best option for this river.
