Flyfishing the breathtaking beautiful rivers of Slovenia is one of the best experiences you can imagine..
Home of the marble trout (Salmo Marmoratus, the largest stream growing trout in the world), the Soča (possibly the most beautiful river in Europe) and its tributaries, is maybe the most challeging fishery where my rods have been to...
Loops loops and more loops..
Soča- The Emerald River
A picky grayling came up to check my fly out five times or more..after changing flies like mad, he wanted the one that I thought I would never use...gotcha :)
