I’m writing this from Kobarid, Slovenia, where my buddy Sandy Hays and I arrived today to fish with Matt Calderaro of Worldflyangler. Matt is an old friend who used to be a rod-and-reel product designer at Orvis—the Superfine Touch and Access rod lines were his babies—but now he has a fly shop and outfitting business in Slovenia. We’ve been talking about this trip for a couple years now, and I can’t believe I’m finally here.
Our goal is to catch some beautiful marble trout like those in the video above. We’ll be on the water bright and early tomorrow, and you can follow along on Instagram (#orvis and #socafly), as well as Facebook and Twitter.
