Dan Fallon's World of Fly fishing

Column nr. 2 2010  



  True world class fly fishing for Brown Trout, Rainbow, Brook, Danube Salmon, and the mysterious Marble Trout. Slovenia fly action exists in the North West area of the Julian Alps where fly fishing is a year round activity. Anglers can relax if this exotic fly venue sounds great for experts? Regardless of one’s expertise either slow drifting sight work, wading shallow rivers or throwing long loops! Rok Lustruk and his seasoned guide team have worked with fly fishers no matter what level of experience.

  Early spring most years will find big rivers running high, Rok knows all the secrets and throws flies on many tributaries which are beautiful in the spring. Later when the flows slow down the larger river systems are more easily accessed." No question when the weather warms we love to throw dry flies and often do with great success." Sight fishing while drifting is always an adventure if the fly angler is experienced. It is absolutely necessary to be careful when planning an international fly adventure, especially in these sober economic times. That is why I carefully choose those adventures that can be easily verified via list of latest clients. If one is diligent in contacting and asking the right questions? Much disappointment can be avoided. I have first hand long time knowledge of Rok Lustruk’s Slovenian fly adventures. This is my second update in the last few years. I highly recommend this young man and his seasoned guide staff. Eastern Europe is perfect for fly fishing as the weather and ice cold waters are not over run with tourists. If your international fly resume’ is a little light on true adventure in exotic locals, perhaps Slovenia may be the answer as is it is well off the beaten path sportsfans.....

  You Looking For Varied Fly Waters Cowboy?

  Rok is a most fortunate world class guide because Slovenia is almost a complete education in serious fly fishing wet and dry, streamer, you name it Rok has it on the menu’. The Kokra River a tributary that connects the River Sava near Krang. Spectacular fighting wild Browns and big Rainbows with the added attraction of Greylings you can brag about! How about a Chalk Stream that could easily fit anywhere in New England? The Kirka special nursery smaller stream where big Browns live unmolested, Rainbows cruise surface hatches and Danube Salmon wonder like submarines, ahhh Chalk stream dry fly my favorite of all. Among the many kinds of waters available Trziska Bistrica tributary of River Sava that cascades from the Karavaanke Mountains perfect small and full of native Brown Trout! No matter what your taste Rok and his seasoned team can easily accommodate.

"And the wheel turns,nothing shall stop it nor destroy it, we Are bound on the wheel. We and the stars and the seas..."

Winged Rock, Robinson Jeffers

Newly ordained United Socialist States Supreme Court Justice Fletcher Quill and his best friend (Absynian Cat) Timba are carefully edging their way out of the castle fly tower because long time Queen of the castle Sharon Stone and Quill’s personal Nurse Caron are well into a territorial hair yank, ghetto smack speak, cat fight!

Quill picks up three of his favorite 4 weight Bamboo fly rods and a hand full of flies and out the door he and Timba go. Less then a mile from Raven’s Haven three small creeks home to fat Brook Trout glisten in the morning sun. Every cast either a hit or hook up, Timba is fascinated and sniffs every Brookie Quill releases. They both stop and lay on the grass while Quill fires a SuperMan Spliff sent to him by San Francisco Homies. Tonight the feasting/ whoring begins in ernest! The Irish first full moon of the new decade is just entering its final waxing phase at 11pm this evening. Staff have been alerted to introduce magic schrooms, Owsley Brain Juice and the psychedelic African Black Truffles. Special cautions have been built in to protect the very sensitive Dali Lama from too much artifical organic stimulation, He will have his own personal medicen men near him at all times. Quill throws a sweet long lazy loop that gently plops where rising Brook Trout are surface feeding...

Fletcher watches his oldest most trusted man butler walking slowly toward him with his usual crisp white towel over his arm and three cell phones demanding attention.

  "Excuse me Sir, hate to disturb you while fly fishing! Prince Charles used to detest anyone even the Queen getting in the way of his fly rod. It appears the Dali Lama and the Chronic Whang Bros are practicing some kind of song and dance number for this evening? Fly Tower is still rocking and rolling with extreme Blondness gone ballistic! Keith Richards and Slash are jamming and wondering where your off to?"

  "How many years have you been with me?"

  "Lets see, after Prince Charles 18 years, then 6 years with wonderful old Jimmy Steward. You and I began on my 45th birthday, now were both in our mid 60s. Does that resonate Master Quill?"

  "You are more important to me then any of the spoiled, entitled greedy Bitches I’m condemned to keep company..... Timba me oldest Pal and you Drake are my two North Stars. Hope Nurse Caron and Sharon do not destroy my temple of peace and rare feathers. Better check on them?"

Enter Snoop Dog!!!!

  "This crib kicks serious booty flymaster, Blond Magnet. Triple Doggy pounderific! Here toke down on this Monster Cush Bush I brought just for you stoner Supreme Court black clad all bad. Gotta catch a break from Tommy Gun Thomas, can’t get him high enough! I’m trippin on these tiny littel people you have crawling and ballin! Feel like po Whitney after Bobby fed her too many right hands. Feel like that punk ass white boy Mark McGuire lied again that fool. Man white boys can’t lie fo shit, have you noticed. Least Tiger spit it out and moved on. How long will it take to teach and old street dawg how to fly fish master?"

  "In your case Snoop not long, maybe five or six years and your ready for anything that swims! Now you know you got no time for nature. By the time you crawl out that Bentley and take one last ride through Jack n Box its 5am uh huh. So get your mind back in time and don’t drop no dime in the river of tears where fly rods rule every pool..."

  "Dirty Whiteboy makes good flymaster. Been reading about your adventures from time I was a boy! You more famous then any dogs in my kennel old man. How you do what you do any who, collecting these highly damaged Blonds just busting with intitelment complexes. They all look great on the outside. It’s the just under the skin creepy stuff that real Snnoop can detect. That manipulating cause I’m so fine I deserve it thang ain’t it dirty white boy? You playing these High Maintence Airport Baggage Bitches! (HMABB) for too .many years. You must have insane healing, grounding, improvising, adapting, overcoming tools San Francisco homey?"

  "Ain’t it a dam shame one man had to catch soo many psycho damaged unrepariable bitches in one fucking life time. On the other testicle me friend! What the fuck else did I have to do? Fight afew wars, catch and release a lot of fine fish, play in all the rivers. I understand what few men will ever perceive. In all cases men are liars and woman manipulators. The game is always rigged with one having more power, money, beauty whatever. You hetero male were born to loose or wonder aimlessly. I chose neither families,brats or any semblance of normality as normality is spirt soul death for boys that live on the edge of the swamp."

  "Celabrate your victory With funeral rites For your slain illusions. Wear some black at your wedding...."

Timothy Leary, Psychedelic Prayers

Staff have sorted out the most interesting, funny, engaging notes, telegrams, arriving from around this little Azure Blue Marble. Quill is back in his fly tower none the worse after several hours of Blond on Blond in yo faceness! Fletcher has yet to see either ultra hot heart breaker emerge from wound licking, ego reingorgment exercises known only to 10+ Blonds...
