Hucho Dreams Come True - Slovenia 2022-2023
Huchen, Danube salmon, or scientifically Hucho Hucho is the biggest salmonid in Europe and a dream for many anglers. King and Queen of the upper sections of Danube`s tributaries. It might as well be the biggest freshwater fish you will ever catch. Huchen fishing, catching and releasing should be done with great respect for this magnificent species.
Slovenia is a top place to fulfill your fly fishing dreams. Huchen season opens on the 1st of October and ends on the 14th of February each year.
It took Stanislav Mankov many years before he started catching this fish on fly. If he did not have the right mentors, he would probably still be hanging around without great success. Fishing for Huchen is not easy at all. Winter time fishing conditions can be rough. Being in a good physical shape is an advantage but knowledge on fish behavior, the lunar cycle and the ability to read the waters are even more essential. Simply put, you have to be there at the right time and in the right place. Know what you are doing and do it consistently. This adventure is organized to optimize your chances to catch your next bucket list fish or just to give an angler the gift of a fly fishing dream coming true.
