Yesterday was my first 2011 visit to river Idrijca.

It was very hot and the water level was low.  You could see the fishes from a long distance, but  they were very cautious, and soon when you tried to approached them they run away.

I was not alone. I was with my friend Martin, who has a nose for fishing in this kind of situation. Most of the fishes were caught in the rapids. Grayling was caught on small dry fly, meanwhile trout on nymph and streamer.

It still would be a great fishing day, if the fish on the last two pictures would not strike at the end of the day. It sure made our fishing day unforgettable!

One thing is sure – Idrijca never disappoints!

I think this is enough speaking, let the pictures talk.

This winter wasn´t very rich with snow, and the same was in spring with rain. The result was very clean and low Vipava river. Heavy rain that came was a benefit for all. Fishermen were no exception. Most of them went to the lower part of Vipava river to fish wells catfish. Well, i decided to go upstream, till the beginning of our district (Kasovlje dam), because I got that feeling that something would happen there.

When i arrived i saw that the water was high and turbid, perfect for streamers. After an hour of fishing i made a cast to some stones and after a second i felt a big strike. I knew that i caught a marble trout, because  the fish tried to go to the bottom with some hard pushes. I was very nervous because i had a 0.16 tippet, but it all went good and my net lied a beautiful marble trout of 60 centimeters. After a quick picture it was released and all pleased decided that is time to move to another position. There i made some casts and again BUM. Another big marble strike my streamer but in this time luck was on her side. I must mention that after i catched a nice chub and a small brown trout and had also 2 other strikes that i didn´t realized…

“I got a feeling” made me very happy.
