Experiences and background have a great importance when you decide to enter a specific job. In my case, I have been lucky to start flyfishing after a long period of “normal” fishing. This gave me the great opportunity to know all the aspects of fishing.
In addition to the following, my passion pushed me to fish most European rivers (Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, England, Ireland, ex-Yugoslavia, Greece, Rumania, Hungary,Czechoslovakia, Far East, New Zealand…). As for Italy, there are few rivers I have not visited.
