How the time runs! Now it´s november and the fly fishing season 2014 is over. Now is the period for fish to regenerate their energy and focus for the spawn period.

My last day proved again that october is truly the best period for fly fishing. I fished only for few hours in the middle of the day when the sun was warmer. Huge amount of insects on the water surface looked like it was may and not october. Fishes were very active and even the water was very clear you could approach them to a few meters without scare them. To catch them I used a small brown nymph and an F fly. Rainbow trouts and graylings ended in my net and then again in the water when released…

See you next season.IMGP0629

Like always, the month of October is the best period for fishing graylings and trouts. Beautiful coloration of the surrounding nature combined with big feeding activity of the fishes, makes every fishing day unique! Yesterday made no difference.

I was fly-fishing in our catch&release part the whole afternoon with my father. Most of the catches were graylings with some rainbow trouts. The fishes were active on the bottom and on the surface, so I alternately used a nymph and a dry fly. Because the water was very clear I used a 0,12 tippet.

I suggest to visit Vipava in this period. Vou will not be dissapointed.

For many fishermen the best period of the season is autumn. Most of the rivers in Slovenia are open till the end of october, some of them also in november. Mostly of them are an alpine tip of river with colder water, which is one of the parameters for fishes to begin the spawn. Maybe this is the reason why fly-fishing in october is more succesful. Fishes needs more energy to prepare the spawning time and are less careful to what they bite. Which fisherman don´t like the noon time when the sun is highest on the sky and graylings are most active on the surface? Pure romanticism! I had some experiences this october, that as soon as the sun shined the water, graylings started to rise.  As soon as they saw our flies, they have taken it immediately…

Now we are in november and my opinion is that the rivers should be closed from november on, but that don´t depend on me. The best thing that we can do is to give them peace… till the next season.
