p1280195 One of my challenges during my work for the Czech Angling Union is recovery of the population of grayling in Vltava river between Vyšší Brod and Český Krumlov, which was destroyed by wintering cormorants 15 years ago. Before winter, we decided to check grayling which we regularly stock to the river inside of the town of Český Krumlov, where fish are a little protected.  Moreover, we stock fish also to the small right inflow called Polečnice which is also suitable for grayling, in pas time, the brook was  full of graylings. I met Jiří there at about lunchtime. The three-years old fish were in great condition and they occurred mainly around the intake, I was fishing 3-size Sage SLT, 0,10 fluorocarbon HC and nymphs size 16 and it was funny. Any nymph with silver of pink bead was working, but the PTN with silver bead and orange neck was the best.

After two hours we moved upstream from the town to catch something for table, I caught few small coarse fish, small barbel, few small browns, one smaller rainbow, and finally, in a big pool, I hooked good rainbow of about 50 cm, slimmer silver fish with big tail. I was patiently playing the fish in the pool and the fish was relatively calm, I drew it to me and we were observing each other for a while, I imagined nice pink fillets, and the rainbow was probably a telepath and after three quick jumps left me with my imaginations :-) Next time. What a nice day fishing.

The panorama of one of the largest castle in the Europe is always nice.
