Upper Soca River was generous to us! The story started with a query of guest from States, willing to explore famous Slovenian River Soca - in a quest for elusive marble trout. We approached him with the information to not lose the marbles before the trip and prepare for unexpected.
We hit the Idrijca Valley mid-week with our colleague David from States. Starting with a bluebird sky and drifting dry flies on upper part of Idrijca River. We could have moved volume of fish, as they were on the move in the lower water column, but the preferences were clear, dry fly sport the preferred technique. Few bow's and a brown trout were exchanging hands and freed to thrive in the rive.
Last week of March the cold front crossed Slovenia, bringing in a rainy spell, with an immediate effect on river levels throughout the land. High waters brought us all - fly-fishing addicts - into perpetual state of distress.
