STUNNINGLAND

Near Rieti…

If you like small environments where casting is very difficult and fish are extremely shy and may be scared only by an undue movement… if you look more at the difficulty of the fishing action than to the real size of the fish (but specimen up to 45 cm are available)… if you like chalk-streams landscapes (but this is a mountain stream turning to chalk-stream in the lowest section)… if you are in Tuscia and don’t mind facing a drive to the province of Rieti, you should not miss this excellent trout water where hatches of big Stoneflies give evidence of the Trn_Ri_280514_093quality of the water.

Best rods are 7 or 7,5″, line #2 up to 5, short but strong leaders, big and bulky attractors (imitations of beetles on hooks up to #6) cast in the micro-channels created by the weeds, hip waders… except when you enter the water and find a bulky hatch and trout are extremely selective and you have to switch to extra thin leaders and invisible flies… To make a long story short… this river is always a surprise and asks for experienced anglers.
