Fly fishing is a type of sport fishing defined as it is because particular artificial baits are used built to imitate, in all their stages of development and life, insects that are born, develop, reproduce and die in the aquatic environment, but also insects called terrestrial, such as ants, grasshoppers, wasps, etc. In any case, the bait is called "fly" even if imitating other creatures of which the fish feeds, like other fishes, shrimps, etc.
The fishing area is located in Valnerina, crossed by the river Nera, from Triponzo to Macenano. This section offers different traits with different difficulties and rules. The upper and lower parts are less considered and notes of the central part. The choice depends on the skills of the fishermen.
Fishing license (also for foreigners) and permission for local "no-kill" areas are required.
It is possible to enter the water almost everywhere, although fishing from the shore is recommended: less disturbance to the fish and more safety for the fisherman due to the strong current. Dungarees may be useful in place of boots in the most difficult or deep areas. Most of the fish are caught along the banks: rarely long shots are made. Generally it runs short, withdraws, raises again and so on.
Fish present: trout between 25 and 35 cm but specimens up to 50cm are not rare.
The fishing season runs from March to October (the official calendar foresees the beginning of the year). However, the activity remains concentrated mainly in the summer period at sunset or at midday, while in spring and autumn it is good to fish during the whole day. The Black generally has a good period between May and June.
