The river Unica begins in the Planina Cave, the biggest water cave in Slovenia with one of the largest confluences of underground rivers in Europe. It gushes out onto the Planina Plain, a classic example of a Karst plain that transforms into a lake after periods of heavy rain, thus giving the fish an additional source of food. After 2 kilometers, it converges with Malenščica with the chalk stream meandering its way across the plain. Because it is a karst river, it slowly starts disappearing in the porous terrain only halfway across, with the Grčarevec sinkholes at the end sucking the last drops of it.

You will begin fishing in the morning, when you will meet your guide at a pre-arranged spot or in front of your accommodation.
After a brief lecture on the most important things you have to look out for while fly fishing in Slovenia, you'll begin with the fishing and during the day you'll visit the best places on the river which are known to produce fish.

With the constant guidance and assistance of our guides, you'll be prepared to catch some nice specimens of trout, grayling or other types of fish residing in the river.
The trip will end in the late afternoon/evening time, with a smile on your face and a camera full of nice photos.

Grayling
Grayling is one of the most popular European fly-fishing species since it mostly feeds on insects and could be quite picky with them. It’s not the biggest fish but is certainly amongst the most beautiful, especially since male Graylings have a colorful flag-like dorsal fin. It grows to a minimum of 45 cm with the largest in Slovenia being caught at 63 cm long.

Brown Trout
The brown trout is a classic fly-fishing species, that every fly-fisher already knows. It’s the most widespread fish in Slovenia and can be found in most of our waters. Its size ranges from 25 to 80 cm, with the largest found in the Karst rivers like Unica. Its yellow-brown, olive green, dark grey or copper red body is sprinkled with red and sometimes black or white spots.

Žiga
I am fishing since I was 3 years old and with age, my passion for fishing only got bigger. As a kid, I was learning about many fishing techniques, but with time, fly and spin fishing have become my favorite ways to spend time by the water. I spend more than 100 days in a year fishing on various venues, hence I know most of the rivers, creeks and lakes in Slovenia. My 3 favorite places are Soča, Sava Bohinjka and Idrijca. Nymphing is my number one technique I'm implementing whenever I can. I’m fluent in English and German.

I wanted to fish for grayling so my guide took me to Unica and I caught 10 grayling in one day.
Vasilij Negovicev
Unica is a relatively small stretch but all you see is grayling, so if you want to catch that fish in particular I suggest you do the same as me and go there.
