The end of the hucho season
A superb shooting head!
In the Drau and Gail in Carynthia(AT) the hucho season is already closed. The rivers in Germany are closed, too. In Slovenia and Croatia the season will end mid February. Only in the river Mur (AT) a small window still remains up to the 1st of March to get contact with one of the kings of the Alpine rivers. It was a great season, with many new findings. Together with RIO I was very much occupied in constructing a prototype of a shooting head for fishing huchos with big streamers and the typical hucho rods between 11-12 ft. We have finally reached a fantastic result. I honestly believe that there is currently no line on the world market which can compete with the one I was fishing in the last months. There is only a little bit of fine tuning left and then I hope that you will get the chance to get this head. Let yourself be surprised!
I was also very pleased to see that fake fly fishing for huchos in Slovenia has disappeared and with it the heavy lead loaded streamers that were cast like spinning gear. Meanwhile most fly fishers at Sava use unweighted or only slightly weighted flies on proper fly lines. Thumbs up for our Slovenian friends and the guides that have made this change possible!!
