SLOVENIAN FLY FISHING NEWS,
INTO A NEW SHOWY FLY FISHING WEEK,
19.3.2018 All right, so it is snowing - so what.. :-) I believe we almost can`t remember what a nice and sunny day out there on the river means.. Some of us adapted to the snowy March, catching some tails even if with great effort due to a slow feeding action of the Trout.. hard work out there on the river but it won`t last for ever.. and when the sun kicks in - a true blast of insects can be expected.. when exactly that would be happening - not sure yet. Surely not yet this week :-)
NEW WEATHER FORECAST - SNOW! ,
16.3.2018 Honestly we all have a full head of the snow and winter-like river banks while half of the March already gone and the next week still remaining cold and even snowy! While we wait for the better times to happen, a short review of the Halloween fly fishing day October 31st 2017 on the Big Sava river - Slovenia.. despite cold fingers and no surface action - enough fun considering the period of almost November month.. more of the same will be publishing on our YouTube channel, subscribe and keep in touch.. thanks for watching.. not on a pro level, but we will get up there too.. ;-)
RADOVNA RIVER MELTING IN PROGRESS,
14.3.2018 Visiting the Radovna river this morning - found the water clear but strong in current. Probably because of the melting snow effect.. fishing is doable but one needs to go down with some heavier weapons of a mass destruction like jig heads of weighted woolybuggers ;-) Fauna fly shop opens at 09am, early enough since the Radovna river valley sees first sun after 9:30 or so..
VISITING THE BIG SAVA RIVER,
6.3.2018 Well March surely kicking asses with this snow of the last few days! One could think that we are into the Hucho fishing season and rivers surely look like that! But the water is ok - clear for now and fish seem to be also active down there on the bottom... keep in minds that this white what you see now will start to melt away with the first sunshine.. creating milky water at least for a week or so.. well - go to fly fish now! :-)
OPENING FLY FISHING 2018!,
28.2.2018 Dear ALL - WELCOME BACK on the FLY FISHING SCENE! Tomorrow, MARCH 1st opens the RADOVNA RIVER and the BIG SAVA river area. Fishing permits and maps for both areas are already available in FAUNA FLY SHOP BLED. But honestly speaking - tomorrow March 1st we expect the lowest temperatures of year - down to -20 degrees Celsius. If you go on the fly fishing tomorrow, make sure the fire in your hart is burning really strong :-) WARMER WEATHER will be happening on the next week period. We shall be updating you frequently about the changes. Keep in touch!
