River Biedano

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 the Biedano means casting the fly only yards from ancient tombs and Etruscan and medieval remains not far from Blera and Barbarano Romano. It has only cyprinids, being the water too warm (also in Winter) and not enough oxygenated for trout but the environment is so enchanting somehow hard to be fished.

In Summer, trees and bushes almost cover the river and offer shelter to fish and anglers. Terrestrials are without any doubt the best fly to be used staying well concealed to fish’s sight. The cast should be “noisy” to attract the attention of the fish which often rise noisily and violently from the bottom.
