I was born in Milan some half a century ago and after many years spent visiting most rivers and lakes of North Italy, I moved to the Centre – not far from Rome – where I found a real paradise as far as flyfishing is concerned.
I have been fishing since the very green years of my life and have switched to flyfishing in 1977.
I have been lucky enough to meet people who taught me a lot. I have no specific preferences as for flyfishing technique even is the dry is – like most of us – my favorite. As a matter of fact, I think that a complete flyangler should have a deep knowledge of all the techniques offered by his tackle (given that the “spirit” of fly angling is not denaturalized).I am fond of all the aspects of flyfishing but my preferences go to its history and phylosophy. Environment improving and respect are also very important to me
I am in deep love with my land and I think that it deserves much more. My past experiences both in Italy and abroad led me to the conclusion that we live in a lucky country where fishing, history, art and nature make it a top rate destination for great holidays and flyfishing.
Too few people have no or little knowledge of what Italy offers to fly anglers. From the north to the southern regions of our peninsula we are literally filled with rivers, streams, lakes and so on all offering top rate opportunities. Unfortunately, these have never received the right and due consideration with the results that when foreign anglers pay us a visit are very much surprised and very seldom unsatisfied.
When I moved from the north (where I spent most of my life and fished most of those waters) to the province of Viterbo I was well aware of the fact that I had decided to live in a magic land.
This province – within short distance from Rome – is rich in lakes and streams and the sea is only half an hour away. The perfect site for the enthusiast anglers to which I shall be glad to offer my guide services, including tuition, fly dressing, lectures, equipment and much much more
