The Hemingway Chapter of Trout Unlimited kicks off its monthly meetings this Thursday with a presentation on fly fishing in Slovenia.
The presentation will be given by Ewald Grabher, originally from Austria and now a full-time Hailey resident. According to a Trout Unlimited news release, Grabher will talk about fishing the Soca River in Slovenia, which is described as “one of the most beautiful trout streams.”
Grabher grew up in the western part of Austria, but has been visiting Idaho and Sun Valley since 1981, having family here that immigrated in the early 1960s. He became a full-time resident in 2001 after he met his wife, Kelly.
Grabher still owns a fishing tackle distribution business in Austria and returns there for business once a year, making sure some days of fly fishing are included in his trip. Grabher is also a fly fishing guide for Silver Creek Outfitters.
The meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m. at Whiskey Jacques’ Restaurant & Nightclub at 251 North Main St. in Ketchum. The public is invited and admission is free.
Trout Unlimited holds monthly meetings the first Thursday of each month from September through May.
