Beautiful pics of your local river. We really ought to start a thread of folk posting in pics of their local rivers? Wether they’re just a tiny Brook/ Stream or a mighty big river as this looks to be? I think we all have an attachment to our local river esp if as in my case it was an early playground long before I picked up a rod.
Nice to see how Poland and many other Eastern European countries are now such well recognised Fly fishing destinations for wild trout and big Grayling? After all it was these countries and it’s fly fisherman that took the World by storm with their Czech and Euro Nymping techniques.
I’ve not travelled the world for my fishing, but I have travelled and fished in Scotland, Wales and England and yes I’ve come to the same conclusions and that includes my local little river. I was kind of hoping up in the Arctic circle though, that the rivers and fish would still be pristineNo longer so great. Heat and drought affects all river worldwide - San is no exception. But like you I started my fly fishing journey on the river San and love it despite being so exploited by now. Without stock fish it would be deserted. I love to play with my light DH rig and streamer or wet fly. Dry fly is an essence, especially for grayling. It's not been about the numbers for a while now but it's sad to see the river dying. I've seen that decreasing number of fish all over the world in the recent years and after my June trip to Swedish Lapland I started to see little hope for the planet at current pace it's being destructed. Only the landscapes remain ... for now.
