The Unica River
Especially among Italian fly fishers the Unec is regarded as the holy river among the spring creeks on the Balkans. It is very difficult to fish as the fishing pressure is high and the trout and grayling living there are "very educated".
Fishing above the bridge
The fish stock of the Unica river, especially the grayling population, is huge. The river also accommodates big brown trout. In the Unica no fish are allowed to be taken. The fish stock is completely endemic. The part above the bridge experiences a heavy fishing pressure. Fishing there successfully requires a lot of experience. Flies size 20 and smaller are standard there. For fishing with nymphs leaders of at least 4-m in length and tippets of 0.12 mm and thinner are a must at certain spots. Gold bead nymphs should be avoided. Pheasant tails, flashback pheasant tails or gammarus imitations are here a good choice. Streamer fishing is permitted in some parts, too. There are also pikes in the river!
Fishing below the bridge
Below the bridge only dry fly fishing is permitted. The flies should be chosen according to the hatch. "Match the hatch!", or you will loose the game! Just tying on a pattern and waiting for a bite is possible at some rivers in the foothills of the Alps, but it does not work here. Exact imitation is wanted here!
