Wet 02

Fishing in Italy asks for a national licenze and is open all year round with a number of limitations. Rivers where trout are present cannot be fished from the first Sunday of October to the last Sunday of February but there are many exceptions (earlier opening or delayed closing, this depending on local regulations). Chub, Barbel, Pike, Grayling, Carp, Black Bass (just to mention fly takers) have their “closed periods”, which is not the same in every province. No-Kill stretches have their own open/closed months and special rules. Wading is permitted everywhere (but not encouraged) with very few exceptions.

Fishing Tips : Wind the pheasant hackle collar style. Don’t cut the tip but point it toward the hook bend (imitating the wings of a stillborn, which hasn’t reached the surface yet). Best in fast but not too shallow (it is heavy, and it might get stuck to the bottom or weeds) moving water. Cast 45° upstream, well above the estimated depth of the fish. Let it sink and block the line. The current will lift the fly to the surface (Leinsering’s Lift); the fish might take it any time during the drift. Best in case of bulging fish.
