Rivers of Brandy & Blood
In this feature length episode of Wild On The Fly, the team travels to the fly fishing paradise of Slovenia to catch Rainbow Trout, Marble Trout and Grayling. First stop is the Soca River Valley, where Slovenian Marble Trout grow to monumental sizes in the emerald water, ready to give Dan Shepherd a good run for his money. Once nearly extinct, these unique fish are now present in great numbers, sometimes in excess of 20 kilos. Next, we join local anglers on the Idrijca River to tell tales of monsters, and hook into some of the resident Rainbows. Finally, it’s a trek to the Ribnik where a more delicate but equally prized quarry, Grayling, are feeding hard on a spring hatch of Mayfly. This incredible fishing is interlaced with a look into the rich culture and history of Slovenia, to give this beautiful country the attention it deserves.
