p1240756 Because of the coincidence of dates and availability of holidays of our clients, we were not able to organise whole workshop, and our activities were spread to several weeks. Rob, Ludwig and Richard arrived already in the last week of May and we spend together two evening sessions and enjoyed dinner in hotel Růže.

Main group from Belgium came in the first week of June and we managed two days of fishing, Jiří joined us as second guide. Finally, two old friends from Switzerland joined the Belgium group, we had in fact small workshop. Flow was higher in the Vtava river under Vyšší Brod, so we spent this two days in Černá river, Devil stones and also in Warm Vltava in Šumava Mountains, beautiful days with a lot of fish caught.

Černá river (Black river) got name thanks to its brown peaty water, in the past time, world “black” was in the old czech language used also in the meaning “dark”, old German name is similar “Schwarzaubach”. Small river hosts good native population of brown trout and grayling and also rainbow trout or brook trout occasionally escaping our hatchery located upstream. Best conditions are during a higher flow as fish are not too shy. It is not far from civilisation, but fishing there is really  nice as you can spend all day in pure nature. Best section is between Benešov nad Černou and Ličov.

Second day we headed to Warm Vltava in Šumava mountains, water flow after rain decreases always faster in the upper part close to Horní Vltavice and water is usually clear as there are only forests and meadows in the catchment area. We were parking in the camp in Horní Vltavice and we were fishing in the adjacent part of river. We caught a lot of browns and graylings, occasionally also dace and bleak migrating from Lipno lake located downstream. Biggest fish I get on dry fly.

Then me and Jiří  moved to the south-east part of our country to river Svratka for spring session of the First Czech Fly Fishing League, but it is another story :-)
