After some years I went to Unica river this September. Sunny day with low water first indicated that we would struggle to get a fish, but at the end of the day we counted more than 10 fishes per person. Most of the success came from dry flies tied on hooks 16-20#. We had more success in faster parts of the river where graylings weren´t so demanding. Trough the day I had some line breaks with decent fish on, and so was for Martin. He succeeded to catch a beautiful brown trout of 50 cm. Bigger graylings started to rise only before the dark, and some of them were caught and then released.

I hope to visit this magnificent river as soon as possible.

The fishing season for salmonids on Vipava river is now over. The fishes will finally get some peace from us till next 1.april.

On the last day of this season the water was a little higher than normal, but without any difference on fishes behaviour. They were rising on small mayflies, so I used my f-flies and had good results. I also tried on bigger nymphs and also had some fishes. Rainbow trout and grayling were “on the menu”, and all of them are still swimming in the river.

Hello everyone

In Slovenia 1. april means the start of fly fishing season on mostly all rivers. Like all years I spend this day on my Vipava river. This year I was skeptical about fishing quality because we didn´t have any considerate rain or snow and the water level was very low and the bottom was full of algae and moss. I started on sunrise and finished on midday. It was very windy and very cold and I was without a wind stopper (what a cold I have today)… Despite the cold weather I was warmed by fishes I caught. Rainbow, grayling, brown and marble trout were in my net in various number and were released as soon as possible. I tried to avoid to catch graylings, because they are now in spawning season.  I surprised some of them (one was longer than 45 cm) but I had one bite instead.

In one pool I had a fish of the day. A beautifull marble of 55 cm took my streamer and made my day complete. Full of adrenaline and memories I decided that was enough and went home.

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.

The Reka river (Reka in Slovene means river) is situated in south-western part of Slovenia. It is a 50 kilometers long river with karstic features. It´s main characteristic is that disappears underground and has the longest (30 kilometers) underground path of all Slovenian rivers. After that it springs as the river Timavo in Italy, near village Duino between Trieste and Monfalcone and outflows in the gulf of Trieste.

The main attraction for fishermen is the native marble trout and brown trout, which is represented in large number. In small quantity also the rainbow trout is represented.

The only allowed technique is fly-fishing. The season starts from 1.march till 31.October. The best period for fishing is in spring.

If you are looking a peaceful river with such beautiful surroundings you should go to Radovna river.

This small river is situated in north-western part of Slovenia a few kilometers from lake Bled. A big part of this river lies in Triglav national park in a small but long Radovna valley.

It could be divided in two parts. The upper part represents dreams come true of each fly fisherman. It is 100% natural, with no human intrusion.  Populated only with native brown trout,relaxation this part is absolute brain relaxation. Here you can practice all day dry-fly fishing with great results.  Because of the lower food production of the river, fishes are smaller but in large number.

The lower part is more influenced by humans  (some small dams), but still very attractive to fish on it. The river conclude its journey in a spectacular canyon.

If you want to fish in astonishing surroundings and completely forget all thoughts, this little paradise is waiting for you.
