Grayling bum...

Graylings are in my oppinion the best fish to be caught on dry flies with ultralight rods (0-2wt.'s).. sometimes they'll take the fly easy, sometimes they are picky, but they do it gracefully and they are friendly fish and "teach" you how to do it until you do it right..here is a home water that I grew up on as a grayling bum...this time an eastern Carpathians Mountains river, very beautiful scenery..alive and well after some very harsh years...this river is long..73 kilometers of pure dry fly water! I'll be casting lots of loops on it this fall season!!

My dog says this is good grayling water:)

Trouts don't live in ugly places..flyfishing extreme (part 1)

Well, ever since I created this blog, I wanted to do show people Romania's beautiful rivers and landscapes (and that includes romanians too, that don't really know or care about how they should take care of their environment, protect the trout and practice catch and release, with some exceptions), so here is something truly unique...


This could probably be a dream come true for the hardcore fly fisherman looking for some truly unique experiences..I look forward to find out this river's secrets and share it with others, fishing friends or entuziasts if there are any..and I'm sure there are some..
Can't quite find the words to say how amazing this place really is...I wish this could be my "office" every day of the season...

This river valley is so damn beautiful and steep, fishing those holes for some big ones can be dangerous...but that makes it more unique and I now realize that it's not fish I'm after...

I'll tell you, those fish are not easy to catch, they might be the most spookiest trouts I've seen so far..I'll let you judge if they are the most beautiful or not..

It might sound crazy fishin' up there with regular boots..Korkers Bite shoes or something similar with me and definitely some climbing rope would be more appropiate:)..This is untouched water and if the river will stay low and the bears won't eat me on my second trip lol:) hopefully it will be even better..

This time I managed to scratch a rod and a new pair of waders (Cloudveil makes such a damn tough wading pant) on a four meter downfall..so it's all good (maybe after part 2), so stay focused and throw some tightloops until then!


I'll let the pics speak for themselves..

Beautiful, steep and dangerous..
