Hello to all,
My name is Andrea and I am a new forum's member.
I live in Italy, in Lunigiana a small rural region in northern Tuscany .
I love fly fishing !
Here in Lunigiana , we are fortunate to have in just a few miles the mountain and the sea , so you can go fishing in both salt water and in many streams of fresh water coming down from the mountains.
The Lunigiana is covered by the system of the Magra River from the mountains of the Apennines , after receiving numerous tributaries , flows into the Ligurian Sea after about 70 km.
In the river you can find a lot of variety of fishes , both freshwater in the upper and middle parts such as trout , chub, barbel , carp , both marine and euraline species in the lower area as seabass , mullet and bluefish.
The Magra river is know throughout Italy as one of the best rivers for the ascent of twaite shad , a anadromous species that responds very well to flies and that goes up the river for several km to breed.
Unfortunately there are also many problems that are now common to all Italian waters ..... but that's another story.
I follow with pleasure the forum publications and I hope to contribute with some beautiful story and beautiful fishing photos.
