This is part 3 of my grayling series of posts.
I learned lots of new nymphing techniques in Bosnia which I can't wait to try back in Ireland next year.
In this clip Amir and myself are focusing on pockets in the river Sanica. We were casting and ensuring to maintain direct contact with the fly. If we got a strike we would notice it on the fly line immediately.
When we arrived at the Ribnik it was incredibly low with alot of weed. Traditional nymphing and euronymphing techniques would not work here. The flies required were TINY. Size 20 and 22 were the norm. Anything bigger the fish reject.
Our guide Amir showed me some next techniques which allowed me to effectively fish the shallow water and catch fish.
We started with a long cast upstream at 45 degrees which is standard however he put a sharp V mend in the bottom of the cast for fast water and a U mend for slower water. As we were not using any indicators we watched the end of the fly line for any movement. We continue the drift until the fly line is 90 degrees below you.
The essential thing in all these nymphing techniques was to maintain tension and contact with the flies at all times.
Introducing the V or U mends allow you to create the perfect drag free drift while maintaining contact with the flies. This is essential for grayling as they are so very hard to deceive especially on Ribnik that has very heavy fishing pressure all year.
I had never seen this before as conventional thinking would be to not allow any slack but this may interfere with drag free drift.
Taking fishing expeditions to other countries and fishing with experienced guides definately makes you a more complete fisherman.

This clip shows you one of the highlights of my trip to Bosnia on the river Sanica. This trip was a huge learning experience and no matter how long you have fished there is always more to learn.
The water was so clear that you would generally sight fish and then stalk them.
Here I can across a huge grayling lying in the middle of the pool and had tried a dry fly three times over him but he did not take any interest and didn't react to the fly.
A really interesting thing I learned is that if the fish is not responding try something else, be it a different pattern or tactic. In this case I tied on a size 20 gold head 1.5 mm bead pheasant tail nymph and on the second cast the grayling took the fly.
We were not using any indicators so with the clarity of the water and the sensitive take of the grayling when I saw a slight movement of the head I struck and hooked this amazing fish of 48 cm.
Even though most of the fishing was dry fly fishing I personally found this type of targeting a single big fish exhilarating.
Amazing sport were you have to react using instinct.
I have learned so much about grayling in the last few days.
I will be sharing my tips and experiences in my upcoming series of grayling posts.

Controlando el “LOOP” del lanzamiento por hombro izquierdo con “Double hall” y “Wide Loop”
Lanzamiento necesario para vientos cruzados de izquierda a derecha y moscas grandes para no enredar la línea.
Muy utilizado para pescar desde arriba de una embarcación, para no clavar anzuelos a quien rema o bien al segundo lanzador o pescador en el otro extremo del bote, balsa, o cataraf. Para quienes prefieren pescar en Float tube, es también un lanzamiento de gran ayuda para vientos cruzados.
