My roots as a fly angler go back to the mid of 1970s. That period is somehow considered as the “dark era” of Fly fishing in Italy. Few fellows to spare the trips with, little or no knowledge of the essentials of flyangling, little or no background. The most fortunate were able to go abroad and fed their brains and souls with foreign rivers and experiences but too few were able to read and understand flyangling English literature.
“The Trout and the Fly”, by Clarke & Goddard, is one of my first translations from English and many others followed. It was a “hard job, but had to be done” , I would say.
