Barbel on the Fly

 

Our Croatian consultant, Dalien Vignjevic, is a jack of all trades, and he'll fly fish for anything that swims - including "river bonefish" or barbel:

The minnow spawn is on and the big barbel lay in between rocks in heavy currents to prey and feed on these little fish.

Using weighted streamers is the ticket to get these on the end of line...

My Scierra Brook #6 rod took some serious beating in landing these strong fish. Also I lost a lot which is normal in such demamnding scenarios...

It was a great fly fishing day!"
