After arriving and spending the night at the Hotel Center Novo mesto, Marina Gibson and members of the Fly fishing nation team spent the day getting to know the new country and planning activities during the time they will spend in Slovenia. After a rich hotel breakfast, they took a short walk through the center of Novo mesto, and then went on a trip to the source of the river Krka. Accompanied by Saša, our fishing guide, they took a good look at the most interesting places for fishing in the upper part of the Krka river. This was followed by a move to the Vovko Inn in Ratež, which will be the home of our guests for the next three days.


Tomorrow, Marina and the Fly fishing nation team will have their first “working” day and the first challenge in the Fish & Fly TRIO product – catching grayling in the Kolpa River.

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.

You can follow the course of the visit daily on the website, Facebook and Instagram profile Green_Adventure_Slovenia.
