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 : Our fast waters ask for big, clearly visible, well floating flies to be cast in the roughest stretches. In calm water, they must be “worked”, “skated” on the surface. It works also as a submerged fly: if it disappears, let it follow the current and retrieve it for a savage attack.
