The last visit on Sava Bohinjka has left a lot of positive thoughts how the fishing would be in autumn. Well our expectations couldn´t be more different from reality…

Water level was higher than in summer and for that reason we thought that the fishing day would be perfect. Combined with sunny weather…

The point of the day was that we really struggle to catch graylings (we focused our fishing to them), who weren´t even a little interested to take our flies. They were lying on the bed of the river, like they were glued to it. The gear we used was very long leader, with very thin tippet (we used 0,10 and also 0,10 fluorocarbon line) and flies tied on hooks #20, #22. We changed more than 20 flies and not even one fly didn´t catch more than 1 grayling (of those who were actually interested to take them).

I hope it will be easier next time.

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

Hello everyone!

The fly-fishing season 2012 on some rivers already begun and i´m already counting down the days to the opening season on my Vipava river.

But in this period i will spend more time to make a new custom-made bamboo fly-fishing rod. It will be a 2 pieces, 7 feet, line 4 rod for dry flies and smaller nymphs. I will make a slightly different model as the “Sir Darryl” special made from Wayne Cattanach. Rod makers usually made 2 tippets, i will made only one.

First of all it is obligatory to cut the bamboo pole to several pieces and regulate their straightness with fire. Because the rod will have a hexagonal shape,  we will need six pieces for each part. The pieces must be planed in special stencils with a planer, to obtain a triangular shape. All six pieces put together will made its characteristic hexagonal shape. All this work requires a lot of time and patience.

 

To be continued…
