River Fiora

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.

It separates Latium from Tuscany and crosses the remains of the ancient Etruscan town of Vulci, creating a small lake (Lake Pellicone).

It’s famous for its big chub and barbels, both appreciated quarries for the passionate flyangler.

Hermitages are disseminated not far from the river.

It springs in Tuscany and divides this region from Latium before entering the sea, where sea-flyfishing is possible with good results.
