River Tanagro

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.

Not very far from river Sele, it is the perfect combination for a round-fishing trip to this area. It is worldwide famous for the presence of Oligoneurella rhenana which is reproduced in many patterns by local fly tiers with good results during specific periods of the year. It has trout of good size, very shy and hard to be convinced to our flies.

When Oligoneurella rhenana are on the wings they form immense and thick swarms often making fishing difficult.
