Starting mid-April, clients travelling to Trentino will have the option of flights from London Gatwick to Bolzano. The flight time is just under two and a half hours and Bolanzo is half an hour closer to the Trentino valley than connecting through Verona.

Blessed with a stunning setting in the Dolomites, with watercourses stretching for 3,000km and almost 300 lakes within its boundaries, Trentino is one of Italy’s most interesting fly fishing destinations. Anglers can fish for trout in alpine lakes, mountain streams, and valley floor rivers such as the Adige (Italy’s second longest), and Lake Garda (the country’s largest). The varied water resources have been improved by careful management over the last few years and the fishing is getting better and better.

The variety of fishing on offer means that there is something for just about everyone, whether you want to exclusively fish dry flies, enjoy modern nymphing techniques, or like to target big fish on streamers. The mountain streams are rapid and boulder strewn making for challenging wading in parts. Once the rivers open out, pools often provide nice easily waded gravel beds.

The guide team is hugely knowledgeable and can tailor the day to suit each angler and the conditions at hand. They speak good English and are always happy to advise on equipment and flies as well as the local fauna and flora.
