Christian and his friend, Nobber, embarked upon a Slovenian fishing adventure earlier this May. They fly-fished their way across the country from the capital Ljubliana to Kobarid near the Italian border.
Getting there was a feat in itself: Nobber is terrified of heights, flights and spiders – not that handy when you’re supposed to be fishing the mountains and gorges of the Julian Alps!
After kissing the ground, they jump in a hire car and head off to their first river destination. Unfotunately, a technical problem with the recording equipment means that we only catch up with the fly-fishing duo on their last day on the Radovna river.
Listen to their last day of fishing as recorded by Nobber himself on this wild and tiny jewel of a river. Hear the fear in Nobber’s voice and the rumbling of his bowels as he documents what he thinks will be his final moments before catching the flight home.
Listener advisory: frequent cursing and toilet humour!
