Summer fishing

June 24th, 2012 No comments

Well apart from the complete fuckup in not making it over to Italy for the weekend, it’s been a good week. I have a new fence, steps and alarm system installed. This week while the Drava is dirty we’ll be extending my roof slightly for a covered outdoor eating area. on Friday, Peter and I fished the Drava. Peter caught a nice Asp on dusk, I missed one!

Rabbit wrap-free

June 13th, 2012 No comments

Here’s one method of tying rabbit zonkers wrap-free. You can of course tie on a mono-loop (which doesn’t really work well, unless you insert the mono inside the strip, which is better). Also there is the String Leech (Matt has a great sequence on Sexyloops) – I used his method to tie the Wine Fly, so called because it fell into a glass of red wine overnight… I lost this fly and then several days after losing it on a strike (this is a true story) I somehow miraculously landed it between fish. It’s still in my box. The problem – maybe – with this method is that fish that hit the front third don’t get hooked, however I’m beginning  to suspect that more fish will be hooked with a rear hook – something to trial.

Oh and capers are best eaten with honey. That’s a Sexyloops’ first (maybe)…

Last days on Gacka for this trip…

I had a really great time fishing the Gacka. My days were emails in the morning, hill running and cycling in the early afternoon, fishing the evenings. Sasha joined me for one day, and I gave  a course with local guru, Tomo, on Saturday.

Fishing Pliva

One of nice two browns in three casts – OK the window of opportunity existed and camera operator error occurred for the first fish, but apart from that the moment was superb!
