August Fly Fishing – all good!

Marching towards the middle of the August month – and on the rivers still good fly fishing conditions! Mostly all rivers you might be after – Sava Bohinjka, Soca, Radovna, Sava, Savinja, Unica are having normal summer levels which in 2020 are in fact not low due to several stormy days in the beginning of the month. There is of course some summer action on the rivers like water sports, kayak guys etc, but not that many since the COVID situation has reduced the tourism in general. If you go on your Fly fishing day early in the morning and return by 11am hitting the river again after 17pm – you did most favour for yourself..

Weather forecast is for now ok – but local storms can be expected almost every few days..

I will go on a summer break this Friday the 15th, returning back to the Fly shop with September 1st. In between, Fauna fly shop in Bled will be operating on a SHORTER OPENING HOURS, CALL THE PHONE BELOW TO MAKE SURE WE ARE OPEN AT THE TIME OF YOUR VISIT!

Assumption day opening hours AUGUST 15th and Sunday AUGUST 16th 9:30 – 10:30am only.

Take care, we will be posting here with Sept. 1st again

Strong Sun and cold water – Optimal for the Fly Fishing?

Yes, July in particular nice this year! Like the nature would like to redeem herself for the wet June we had been facing previously. Evening showers or even storms keeping the rivers in good shape and keeping the fish active also during the day. Normally, July would be having some action on the river early in the morning and late afternoons, but now one can nicely fly fish also during the day. Sava Bohinjka having average angler visit, if you come to our Fly shop we can decide which of the 3 areas of the river is less busy on a chosen day..

COVID- no new restrictions except wearing masks when you enter in some shops. SLOVENIA does not have any major infection increasing and is consider safest Balkan area state for the visit! If you follow basic hygienic rules – you almost have no chance to infect yourself if visiting Bled area and surrounding villages!

Weather forecast for the following days – ALL GOOD and SAFE TO COME!

Fly Fishing Slovenia, March 2019

As the main fly fishing season in Slovenia kicks-in now, with April 1st, impatient ones already roaming the river Sava in March! Regardless colder water there are signs for action! Except larger Trout which is still in the spawning mood – ignoring the food that passes by, medium sized Trout already feeds nicely! Mostly on nymphs and bottom food, hatch still week or none.. This winter Slovenia has been poor with snow – meaning that the snow-run waters will be lasting only a short while.. weather seems to be fine, pack the rods and plan your fly fishing trip! Early season – less anglers and less careful fish!

First visiting Fly Fisherman arriving to Bled, Guided trip below was a success, more than handful Trout landed during the fly fishing day and in the afternoon a crown jewel Grayling of a massive weight grab the nymph – a perfect day we might call it!
