Exciting Fly Fishing Adventures
This month we
are going to see fun excerpts from arguably the world’s best produced, most entertaining, informative and lovely-to-look-at TV series that specializes in fly fishing adventures around the globe. We will be welcoming back to SoCal our Rome-based good friends (along with their energetic personalities), Marica Cicoria and Alberto Salvini. Nine years ago, Alberto and Marica toured our SoCal fly fishing clubs and showed excerpts from their amazing fishing in Mongolia, as well as a great segment on Martha’s Vineyard.
Shortly after that trip, they started their own company, “The Italians,” with the aim of producing “Pescavventura,” a travel/documentary series on fly fishing adventures around the world. This series was first televised on the satellite channel “Caccia e Pesca” on Sky Channel 235-236. Since then, they have completed and shown 64 episodes of their acclaimed TV
series and we are going to see clips from the “best of the best.” Some places will be more thoroughly covered (such as Texas kayak fishing, Austria spring creeks and the beauty of Italian countryside streams and lakes) than others, but we will also see trout fishing in Idaho, Montana and Ohio as well as great footage from Cuba, Zambia, Sri Lanka, Iceland, Denmark and Slovenia.
And don’t worry about having to brush up on your Italian. Everything shown will have a sound track in English, or Marica herself will be narrating live (yes, in English) a number of the-chosen-just-for-us clips.
Alberto and Marica have, for more than two decades now, been traveling and fishing around the world and been expert guides for many waters in the USA, particularly in the West. Since 2000 they have been promoters and guides for the freshwater frontier of Mongolia and of special saltwater fishing in the tropical waters of the Maldives and the Seychelles. In Italy they participate in seminars and teach at fly fishing schools for many different clubs and associations.
Together they work to promote all aspects of fly fishing, offering their expertise as freelance journalists, photographers, instructors, keynote speakers at clubs and shows, consultants for international companies in the fly fishing market, and testimonials for important fly fishing products.
Moreover, they regularly attend the world’s most important meetings and workshops to widen their experience and support the fly fishing philosophy of conservation, education and catch-and-release.
