Val di Mastallone is a beautiful spot for fly fishing, located in the Italian Piedmont region, at the foot of the Alps and Monte Rosa. It’s a beautiful area, famous among fly fishermen as a paradise of small crystalline rivers populated by an incredible density of trout, including the famous marble trout. Anglers can test their skills on a wonderful variety of rivers and lakes while non-fishers will find plenty to enjoy.

There are miles of beautiful rivers to explore, on a variety of private stretches, including the Mastallone, the main Sesia, Carcoforo and many other smaller tributaries. Each section is utterly unique and provides everything from tumbling mountain streams with dry fly hungry brown trout, to larger sections of river with good dry fly pools, nymphing sections and places to tempt large marble trout from the shadows with nymphs and streamers. Knowledgeable guides will tailor each day to suit anglers and the conditions at hand.
