Tic-tac, tic-tac, wait and track, wait and try.. try some more…    AND CATCH YOUR MONSTER HUCHO!! Hahaha.. Yes, I might needed a season or two more than some of you, to join the elite club of 110+ Hucho catchers.. BUT NOW I AM HERE, with my 117-er!!!!!

Sooo happy, to be able catching Him on my home river Sava Bohinjka, accompanied by my friend and Hucho-fishing bud – AL!! Superb handling of the hooked giant, if being there alone – the below images might just not be there..

Since there is no clear evidence that this Hucho would be caught before, I might just named him!? Monster Mr. Scar face released back to his kingdom!!!

C&R – protect the river kings Hucho-Hucho!!

Sincerely,

Matej

Sie haben nur noch 10 Tage Zeit, um den Hucho zu fangen!

Dort gibt es eine schöne Möglichkeit zum Fliegenfischen auf der Save Bohinjka. Die Größe war nichts Besonderes, aber jeder einzelne Huchen-Fang ist ein eigenes Kapitel! Und als solche – unvergesslich! Noch 10 Tage bis zum Ende der Angelsaison 2019-2020 in Huchen! Die Aufregung steigt!

A nice Huchen fly fishing catch out there on the Sava Bohinjka river. The size was nothing special but every single Huchen catch is a chapter of its own!  And as such – unforgetable! 10 More days remaining to catch your dreams!!

Jeder Huchen-Fang ist ein besonderer! Manchmal kann es auch ein bisschen lustig sein

Better can`t get! Fly fishing dream came true!

TWO HUCHEN in one fishing day!? No way… Seriously?

Well, glad you surfed on the page… this here is worth your time reading: Yes, it did happen in the past that somebody got 2 Hucho-huchos in one day. Maybe even three.. But I do not quite remember when some one landed two OVER 1M size in one fishing day!?

But Hucho-hucho fishing is full of surprises and what seemed to be impossible to achieve – happened yesterday! Visiting team of CH anglers, Robin Ruffini and Andy Furrer on their 1st time visit in Slovenia, chasing Hucho on the Sava Bohinjka river.. Day 1 went by with a lost strike, which was a stressful experience, especially since that might be the only strike of their visit.. But the faith had other plans… Day 2 a shower of the rain milked up the river a bit.. When already wanting to leave the pool, AL got that special feeling – go, Robin, make one more cast… BAAAANGGG!!! 115er on line!! All that drama etc and they thought that`s it.. let us finish this special day in a relax atmosphere – we already have our trophy fish.. But in the evening…. BAAANGGG No.2!!! 110-er!!!?? OMG!! Speechless I am regardless all the text I had just wrote!! Haaack.. how can now one repeat this new Hucho fly fishing tag!!?? but like we said – EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE with this DEMON of Hucho!!

As some anglers consider that having a HUCHO FISHING GUIDE is just another person walking the river with you (and if the Huchen guide is not a Pro. that might even be true.. FB is full of “wanna be hucho guides” in real life, Hucho Guide is what makes all the difference when the moment of your glory happens!! Hooking a fish is 70% but the rest  is landing and handling it! Here is when you learn what a good Hucho guide means!

Ending the 2019 in a style – Hucho Hucho fever!

Finally Bled and the Sava Bohinjka river remaining out of the rain and flood situation that lasted almost a month and a half! Rivers are returning into their normal channels and the Huchos are coming back to their home pools – enabling us to located them more easy than in high water situation when the big-boys Huchos roam around and seek for new territories and feeding opportunities!

Another great day out there on the Sava Bohinjka river, chasing the Huchos!! Super company, nice weather and aggressive strike of the 90-er at the ends of the fishing day! What more to expect!!? The first January`s end of the week (3-5th) is “Hucho frenzy” sold-out! Any Hucho hunter eager to try his skills – report in after that date please! WISH YOU ALL PROSPER 2020, thank you for your time spent with our Guides, pages, news, e-mails etc.. we consider you as one big happy fishing family! Tight lines till we meet again! Matej

Fauna Fly Shop Bled starts to operate again in January 3rd – emails might see delay in replying since we are all on the Hucho-Hucho fishing or Guiding. thank you for your patience!

Fishing Hucho – Snow put the fish on the move!

December month we go and fly fish for the Hucho! With the changing weather every serious hucho fisherman should be on the river, especially if the change means snow! Somehow this weather situation puts the Hucho in action to feed! The last week, fish activity was increasing as you can see in the gallery below – rainbow trout was striking well.. It was just a question of time when the Huchen will make mistake and grab the streamer! And it did.. Medium sized, but nevertheless a very good looking healthy fish it was! Bigger Huchos usually pick up the action a bit later since their stomachs don`t need to feed as frequent as the younger Huchen must. But they will need to feed – sooner or later :-) When that happens – one can just hope to be there at the right spot!

Strikes reporting in – Huchos on the move!

Rainy November about to say goodbye and December knocks in with the colder and more dry days! Waters of the Sava Bohinjka river going back to their normal levels and the Huchos moving with them too! While in the higher levels Hucho-hucho usually roams around and away from his home pool, with the dropping water they return to the home pool areas.. this makes them a bit more easy to locate and locating them is a half of the strike-on project!

Fishing condition for the week ahead seems to be steady.. a bit of everything but not flooding up or snow blizzard events… GOOO HUCHEN FISCHEN – or Fishing the same for us :-)
