Marina Gibson is a truly passionate angler, a certified ‘Fly Fishers International’ (CI) Instructor and 1st4sport Level 2 coach, who followed the footsteps of her mother Joanna Gibson, also a devoted fly fisher, and dedicated a significant part of her life to the pursuit of every type of fish at every available opportunity wherever in the world that may be. Marina is also a freelance writer and social media influencer, a true fly fishing ambassador. Last year she launched The Northern Fishing School at Swinton Estate in North Yorkshire where she and her team teach all ages and abilities the art and technique of fly fishing and connect as many people as possible to the great outdoors.
Impressed by Slovenia and its pristine nature and rivers Marina Gibson will visit this country once again on September 7, accompanied by the Fly Fishing Nation, the leading content creation and expedition scouting group in the world of fly fishing. As a part of the tourist product Green Adventure Fish & Fly Trio, she will visit some of the best Slovenian fishing destinations. Green Adventure Fish & Fly Trio is a premuim tourist product, awarded by Slovenian Tourist Organization. It offers a top fly-fishing experience at 3 different fishing destinations, including the “hidden gems” of Slovenia. It sets a “triple challenge”: to catch 3 indigenous fish species within 3 days; the grayling in Kolpa River, the brown trout in Krka River and the marble trout in Soča River. The product is unique of its kind in Slovenia and is carried out throughout the entire year – even in the winter, when the fishermen will try to outwit the danube salmon (hucho hucho) – the king of Slovenian waters. It also includes the superb local culinary experiences from 3 different hospitality providers. For the adventure to be truly first-class, and as suggested by the name of the product, the guests will also experience a helicopter flight from one fishing destination to the other, provided by Flycom Aviation.
