Little flies fever

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Fantastic weather for past few days – frost at night but up to 17 degrees during the day. Fishing is absolutely stunning with little size 20 dry flies, but only for 3-4 hours in the middle of the day. Grayling appeared suddenly and are everywhere!

English Ladies Team

With the English Ladies team we had some fun and good fishing with nice weather conditions all week long. The owner of the local ice cream/cookie shop will be able to buy a brand new Porsche with this weeks profit ;-)

Friends Group

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

The traditional October’s Friends Group again had some fantastic weather and good fishing, unfortunately spoiled by unreasonable opening of the dam which made the river unfisheable, luckily for a day only. Obviously another swing of conditions didn’t influence the fish in a positive way. Let this year end!
I was so unfriendly to my guests that I caught a 50 cm grayling.. Sorry Pat!!

Not easy

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

The river got back to low and clear, weather is beautifull, but catching fish is so hard! I think the swing of weather successfully blocked them in their holes.

Dunajec river

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

Third this year trip to the Dunajec river – we are exploring a potentially new destination. The river surprised us each time with great amount of brown trout, this time we had some reasonable grayling as well. The wading is very hard and even dangerous. The only thing that spoiled our stay was the amount of rubbish found around us. We will reapeat these trips constantly, contact us if you want to participate.

It rains non stop since Monday and finally the river got unfishable. It won’t clear in next few days. The forecast is not good, they anounce rain till half of the week. It is horribly cold – only 8 degrees, down to 4 at night. 5 centimeters of snow covers the upper parts of the mountains. What is that???

Paul Procter’s report: Despite a sudden drop in air temperature the hatches of fly were still quite incredible, resulting in swallows and martins hawking over the water in huge numbers. Of course, the fish fed hard too when during the early afternoon the rise intensified. Modest brown trout kept us busy, however, quality grayling could also be had by those prepared to search. They were usually found holding close to deeper water and responded to small spiders or dries presented dead-drift, with fish to 46cm and 30-40cm grayling common.

Beautifull weather, fantastic fishing. JT with his group had all that the San can give. Finally we had what we were waiting for all the time!

Recovering after flood

Friday, August 8th, 2008

The river got to its normal level, however the water is still stired. Fishing was non existent for last few weeks, so there is nothing to write about. Obviously the huge flood has change the river bed and it will take some time till I learn it again. Fish might have changed position as well so I assume it is going to be interesting.

Biggest flood since 30 years! River is more than 2 meters over its normal level!!! It roars while bringing down huge trees. You can feel the earth in the garden vibrate as the giant flush of water runs just few meters below. Armageddon.
