A chub story

This is a photo story about real game fish - chub, that lives in almost all inland waters in Croatia. You can find it in high mountain streams and rivers, as well as in large lowland rivers and lakes. Usually fishermen catch it with various fishing techniques and types of lures and baits, but it is a shame not to use fly rod and flies made by yourself. Sometimes it will took nymph type of flies or some jig bellow the surface, but the real thing is happening at the surface of the water. You can try with two types of flies. Imitations of large insects (grasshopper or bumblebee for example) or with a floating streamers that imitates small prey fish. This is a real sight fly fishing and your fly has to be thrown right at the fish head, but  fish should not see you at first. Long leader is necessary, but diameter should not be less than 0,18 mm.  Be quiet on the coast, and you can have fly fishing of your life, with a significant number of fish, some of which hits the edge of the 60 cm, and weight 3,5 kg or maybe more. The other fish species that can be simultaneously caught with chub in our large inland rivers is asp, but this is a part of another fishing story.
