Rok:
I wanted you to know that I could not have had a better fishing adventure than my three days with you in Slovenia in July. To recapitulate, you said on the first day I would catch a lot of fish--naming a figure I did not think even remotely possible. And we did. On the second day, you said we would try to catch a Marble trout--no guarantees but we would make the effort. I was not so concerned if that did not happen but I noticed that you did not really relax until I had caught one. I was more worried about your expectations than mine! I ended up with four for the trip, from two diffeerent tributaries. And the beautiful pricture you took of one on the upper section of a smaller stream that had remarkable dark markings.On the third day, you said I "could" catch a lot of bigger fish. And so we did--20 fish over 14 inches from one hole alone. What a day fishing a small stream with no one in sight for most of the time.

I fish some of the best waters in the world here in Oregon--the Deschutes, Willamette, Clackamas, McKenzie, Wilson, Trask, and many others. But there was something very special about the Julian Alps. Your knowledge of every stream was essential for my trip as there had been storms in the mountains and most streams were blown out. But you knew the ones that would remain fishable and where.

I will return when I can. I am torn between telling others about it and keeping it a secret to share with a more limited number of people. Good things often do not last.

Again, my thanks for an exceptional three days of world class fishing.
My best,

Ron
