On the fringe of our youth culture there’s fishing. Young fishermen join angling clubs all over Slovenia and once a year they have a flyfishing camp and a general fishing camp. Attendance is dropping, mostly due to disinterest of grown-ups or institutions of helping out financially or even some other reason that helps them fail at trying to steer the kids away from the normal drunk lifestyle of today’s Slovenians. But a few people still try to bring as many young fishermen to these camps.
This year, the camp was hosted by a small town of Ljubno. The people working with young fishermen took this oportunity to organise the first ever national flyfishing championships for young fishermen under 18 years of age. The results will – for the first time in history of our nation – determine our young team for the World Flyfishing Championships for Young Fishermen in Italy.
It’s nice to see them be interested in something other than drinking and partying. Refreshing. And something worth covering.
