Bosnia in the Mist (part 3):

As I was saying, despite foul weather (we didn't see any sunshine for 3 days) the Ribnik was treating us to some truly amazing fly hatches. And once you'd rid yourself of "buck fever" (casting randomly), it was possible to start connecting with some notable wild fish. Generally speaking, small CdC flies were the order of the day with size 18 patterns dominating our campaign. In fact, so dense were the fly hatches they lasted from 10am right through until 5pm when chilly air descending from the surrounding mountains brought an abrupt end to the days events.
