Wonderful day on the Krka river !! Marina, Stephan and Paulo also successfully overcame the second challenge, they managed to outwit the brown trout. Once again, Marina was the most successful with 52 cm beautiful brownie. During the activities on the Dolenjska green beauty, we also experienced a pleasant surprise – we were visited by the film crew of RTV Slovenia, led by Marjana Grčman – the host of the tourist show “Na lepše”.

Tomorrow is definitely the peak of the FISH & FLY TRIO experience – a morning helicopter flight to the Hotel Zlata ribica near Idrijca and the last step towards fulfilling the final goal – fishing marble trout.

We saved the best for last. In one word, we can describe the whole day as unforgettable. A wonderful morning in Dolenjska, an exciting helicopter flight over Slovenia, beautiful views on a sunny day, landing on the river Idrijca, a warm welcome at the Hotel Zlata ribica and …. again successful fishing and achieved the triple challenge Fish & Fly trio.

The marble trout also landed in the hands of Marina, Stephan and Paul for a short time, at least so much so that they proudly took a photo and then released them.

The first Fish & Fly Trio Challenge is over, guests were thrilled with the three-day experience, the hospitality, clean rivers and healthy fish. We have proven that the triple challenge is feasible, but not easy at all.

We are infinitely grateful to our guests Marina Gibson and the Fly Fishing Nation team for a wonderful experience.

The first working day of the promotional tour of the Fish & Fly TRIO tourist experience is behind us. We took Marina and the Fly fishing nation team to the upper part of the Kolpa river in Osilnica. Main task was catching a grayling. The valley of the Kolpa river and the stunning nature did not leave them indifferent, especially at the end of the day, when we were happy to find that they all managed to overcome the first challenge.


So what is Green Adventure Fish & Fly Trio, that @marinagibson is here for, actually about? It is a  first-class fly fishing experience at 3 different fishing destinations with 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 Soca River. In the winter, the fishermen will try to outwit the danube salmon (hucho hucho) – the king of Slovenian waters. As suggested by the name of the product, the guests also experience  a helicopter or airplane flight from one fishing destination to the other, provided by @Flycom Aviation. And of course, everything is combined with great accommodation, superb local culinary experiences and great fishing guides.

Tomorrow we have a new task ahead of us – to catch brown trout at the source of the river Krka. Marina won today, who will be tomorrow?

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.
