A sunny end of the week!?

Here the latest Video from the Sava Bohinjka- Friday October 16th – Bled fishing club still suffers from strong current, upstream in the Institute and Bohinj a bit better. Saturday will have the 1st fisherman, while Sunday and Monday October 17,18 should be ok for the fly fishing in all 3 sectors of the Sava B. river.

Fauna fly shop in Bled opens daily at 8:30am – welcome to visit :-)

www.faunaflyshop.si  open 24/7 – welcome to visit too :-)

Wednesday October 14th – out there on the Sava Bohinjka Bled fishing club;

The awesome year 2020 with the stup.covid situation decided to go in the history in style! Bringing 1st snow down on October 12th! While we should still be casting those dries at pleasant 18 degrees, we needed to put out winter closing instead and switch down to nymph and streamer..

Good news is, that this should be temporary messup and the situation with the weather and warmer temperatures should return in the second half of the month October. Hopefully. Since high mountains have snow now, rivers of the north-west Slovenia should be dropping fast and go clear possibly till the end of this week, October 18-19th. We shall be posting levels on Friday morning, welcome to visit.

Covid-situation: hm… we could say – a bit chaotic when it goes for crossing the borders with Slovenia: I had spoke with few flyfisherman from Italy and Austria – they told me nobody ask them nothing when they crossed the border. Others had to show covid-negative test not older than 2 days.. what we advise – if you go to fish for 1 day, maybe try your luck. But if it goes for a several day visit, make the test and make sure you will have your flyfishing tour a success..

With far less people than normal – you will have a lot of the comfort on the rivers, so is worth making the effort with the arrival.

Here some images of the October 12th – weird fishing weather but… fish were there :-)

Check out also the late Autumn series of MINI PARACHUTES in the www.faunaflyshop.si! Very effective on Grayling!<<<<

Sava Bohinjka - Savica

We might have a weekend October 10-11 fishable!

It seems like there might be and OPTION TO FLY FISH on the Saturday and Sunday October 10,11th! River is dropping! The smaller Radovna and Lipnika river might be just perfect, since those two dropping faster than the bigger rivers.

Should we mention that on the SAVA RADOVLJICA (Big Sava river) Hucho-hucho fishing is already open as well as the regular fly fishing. Two methods allowed at the same time on the same river.. One day fishing the Hucho, second day going for the Grayling :-) Very unique combination of the two exciting sports!

Here the VIDEO from the river, taken October 8th on the military bridge, Bled fishing club, Sava Bohinjka

New arrivals also from SIMMS Autumn-winter CAPS AND BEANIES!!<<<<

Here the VIDEO from the river, taken October 9th on the same place – military bridge, Bled fishing club, Sava Bohinjka. You can COMPARE the dropping rate of the river/day!

July Fly Fishing staying fresh and active!

Kind-a special July 2020 – as the whole year being very particular – showers and storms keep the temperatures on the rivers at the normal degrees. No super hot heat waves like in 2019, levels of most Slovenian rivers remaining low but fishable. Unica dropped below 40cm level which might mean very selective feeding of Grayling.. the rest of the major rivers like Sava Bohinjka, Soca, Idrijca, Radovna etc. will prefer smaller patterns, darker in general and of most importance – 7X tippet material! No wonder fly will do any good if you gonna attach it on a 4X tippet material hah!

Weather forecast for the coming week:

Into July 2020 we Fly fish!

Cheers from Fauna Fly Shop Bled! Some updates regarding different fly fishing concerning issues!

Fishing conditions on the rivers of Slovenia are fine and close to perfect if we consider deeping into July; showers are keeping the daily temperature around 25 degrees and the rivers on their optimal levels. Mix weather is not good for the non-fishing river activities like kayak, drifting boats etc- again a positive thing for a fly fisherman. If you get a cloudy day, fish will be active also during the day. If very sunny, it is worth waking up early and rather catch some nap in the mid day time, returning to the rivers later afternoon. Fauna fly shop opens daily at 8am, but you can also get a permit for the next day and wake up early.

COVID UPDATE: From tomorrow, July 4th, BELGIUM and the NEDERLANDS coming to the GREEN, covid safe country LIST and the citizens can enter Slovenia with NO PROBLEMS.  

Weather wizard for the next days: ALL SAFE FOR A FLY FISHING TRIPS!
