June 8


blog-June-8-2013-2-soufie-fishYesterday we fished a new river in Slovenia named the Nadiža.  A stunningly beautiful river but very few fish.  I caught more soufie than trout.  However the two rainbows I caught were big and both absolutely smoked me on my 4-weight Ross Rx.

Today was my last day so I went back to the small river, the Reka Baču.  I went there specifically to catch marble trout one more time.  From my experience here earlier in the trip the fish are small but no less than gorgeous.  I also had one that I botched earlier this week that I wanted to try for again.  Sure enough he was there and today I got him.  To my surprise he was a 15” grayling.  I was positioning him for a few photos on the gravel bar and he got away.  The only shot I got was this one, a shame as he was spectacular.


And yes, I caught a few more small marble trout and brown trout marble trout hybrids – they are so cool!


blog-June-9-2013-6-marble-troutMy license ran out today and even though I have a few hours in the morning before the journey home I’m calling it.  My last day on the Reka Baču was just the way I wanted to end it.  Later this week I’ll sum up the trip and show more pics.


Also later this week, the Henrys Fork, starting with the Ranch Opener this weekend!

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
