There are three crucial components in fly casting: Fly line, fly rod and human being. Fly casting and fly fishing would be impossible if one of these ingredients were missing from the equation.
A few days ago I went with my buddy Luka Simunjak for another Gacka river trip...
The water level was high and rising over the course of day, so the fishing was tough, a lot tougher than we expected!
Hi guys, finally the trout season kicked off here. I went to fish the famous Gacka river on the opening day and had a great time fishing mostly for rainbows The water was a bit high, so usually this time of year small streamers on sinking tippets work best, but I decided to go against the grain - very wrong!
I've been dreaming about Trout opening season since season got closed.
Ribnik was our destination and our friend Ado who is a professional guiding master was waiting for us there. Trout was our primary target and I decided to take a chance with my favorite Sierra Brook #5 8ft., a nice rod for smaller rivers like Ribnik. Casting with Brook under branches was fun and and we have had a nice time playing with small browns.
Slovenian graylings are not grey. Their almost golden scales will light up even the darkest of days and size doesn’t always matter when beauties like these are lifted to waiting cameras. Today, I was hunting Slovenian gold and there was even something golden about the day, the weather and my state of mind………..
Scierra Brook meets rainbows from Hell - "Another day dawned, inconspicuously like its recent predecessors, but I woke up with a strange feeling of muted elation, even though my brain could find no evidence to back up this state of mind. The ever present night fog was slowly dissipating as I rose from bed to take a welcoming shower before breakfast..."
