Day 3 – Car Train –

Day 3 – Car Train – Sava Bohinjka River Today was going to be a days of firsts. It was the first day I was not going to be driving (Darrell looked pleased about that), it was also the first time I would have ever been on a Car Train. We caught the train from Most Na Soci to Bohinjska to fish the Sava Bohinjka river. It was one of the highlights of the trip for me, the train approached the station with what seemed like 3 empty trailers on the back, we drove onto an empty trailer and within a few minutes were on our way – it was a strange experience being sat in a car whilst the train took us to our destination – through deep valleys and tunnels underneath mountains. Eventually after about 45 minutes we reached our destination and caught sight of the Sava Bohinjka river, a wide slow moving river which we both took to straight away. It turned out today was going to be a Grayling day (my favourite species). Lots of long riffles and broken water and pods of Grayling everywhere, it was my idea of heaven. After spending the day chasing Grayling, Darrell had one final large Rainbow Trout and that was our Slovenian adventure over. All that was left to do was catch the train back, eat a stunning meal (thanks Rosie) and then head off to bed, ready to be up early for our drive back to Venice and an early flight back to the UK. So, what did we learn from our trip: 1. Don’t wear flip-flops when walking the banks 2. Remember to drive on the right hand side of the road at all times! 3. Use a bigger fly 4. Listen to the locals and take their advice We really enjoyed our trip to Slovenia and are already planning another trip somewhere for next year. If this has inspired to you take a trip out somewhere – just go for it. 10 | 11
