Sava Bohinjka comes good:

Once more, heavy rain scuppered our plans, we hopped on the train to Bohinjka and found the Sava system hadn't missed those nasty storms either. Despite running high, thankfully the Sava was clear. A healthy push of water restricted much of our fishing to the margins and here we found grayling willing to move to large dries like Klinkhamers and Elk Hair Caddis patterns. During our session water clarity improved further making it possible to actual target fish be sight, which is always an exciting form of fishing. Although little surface fly was evident, grayling were tempted up with carefully presented flies drifted tight against the tree line.
