Fishing methods

Fly Only

A #5 weight rod, 9ft - 9ft 6 covers most situations, though it can be useful to have a lighter 8ft setup, and a heavier 9ft 6 setup as well. Floating line - Dry fly fishing is popular, but Czech nymphing works well on some of the very swift pools. It is also important to carry heavy Lures and streamers, and a sinking line [Deep 7] or similar, for flood conditions.

Slovenia's rivers are alpine and tree-lined in nature, therefore the ability to wade is usually required. This doesn't necessarily mean deep wading, but there is usually wading of some sort on any given fishing day in order to reach the fish. Special patterns are available to purchase for your trip that have been developed specifically for Slovenia's rivers.
