THE ART OF SEDUCTION

Soča. Nadiža. Tolminka.Bača. Kneža. Koritnica. Idrijca. Trebuščica. Učja.

Clean rivers on the sunny side of Alps and a real paradise for fly fishing and the marble trout which can weighup to 25 kilograms and grow up to 121 cm in lenght!  Is this simply a tall tale?

The marble trout does not grant wishes, however one wish is always fulfilled when you catch one. That of a fishing paradise.

However , we know that there is only one Soča River. Also because of the edemic fish that lives here –  the marble trout which has a characteristic marble patterned body. Although some belive that it had disappeared due to intermixed breeding, they were discovered fifty years ago in a hardto reach and isolated portionof the river. The devotion to maintaining the species has borne fruit and the marble trout has remained a pure species.

Marble trout and the other species of fish found in the rivers in this area have one thing  in common. They are clean and they are hard to catch.
