Years ago it would be unthinkable not to start the fly-fishing season right on 1.april. But times are different and my first fly-fishing day was only on 9 of april.

I was waiting for this day since the middle of november for one reason only – testing my new bamboo fly-fishing rod. It´s a  line 4 rod which i made for small streams using light nymphs and dry flies. The d-day was planned to be on my river – Vipava.

The initial casts were lighter, just to feel the action and see the response. After the initial learning i started to improve the casts with more and more energy, till i reached my maximum power. I could say that i was surprised about the medium-fast action. Even if it´s not graphite i easily launched the line 20 meters and more.

First i used some nymphs on 10 an 12, after i tied some dry-flies because the fishes were rising. I caught some rainbows, and found a nice grayling (about 45 centimeters) dead on the bottom of the river.

In conclusion i was very excited about the results of my new bamboo rod, the fishes were not my primary goal.

This small alpine river is situated on the western part of Slovenia and flows into Idrijca river. The river made it´s course through a small valley which is, in some parts, large only few meters. It´s 20 kilometers long stream could be divided into two parts. The lower part is wider and easier to fish. Fishes that lives it this part are marble trout, hybrids, grayling and rainbow trout. Because of it´s easier access this part is more frequented by fishermen despite the upper part.

The opposite of the lower is the upper part. This part is more time-consuming to reach and harder to fish, because the river is smaller and fishes more prudent and escape as soon they see intruders. But for those who like the challenge to fish with long casts and be hidden as possible in a small space, this part is ideal. The result will not fail to come, because the fishes are more interested into biting the flies!

On both parts only fly fishing is allowed.
