Toscana – fly fishing the sea of Chianti


ABOUT OUR FLY FISHING TOUR IN TOSCANA

[one_second last=”no”]

Castiglione della Pescaia is not only a beautiful medieval hamlet by the sea, immersed in wonderful nature: the sea reigns here and fishing is certainly does not come second.

You can cast to bluefish in top-water from the shore or, on the best days, reach, on a belly boat, a small estuary just a few miles from the harbour to look for big-sized bluefish, whereas at early dawn let the dolphinfish entertain you with very powerful attacks and acrobatic jumps.

You just need to be equipped with two 9″ rods, one for a  # 9 and one # 10l, to fish above all with a floating line, but you’d better always take one intermediate one with you as well.
Poppers, Gurglers and streamers of different sizes are the flies to be used in every situation.
When the sea does not allow you to fish, you can go to the beautiful Orbetello lagoon, where middle-sized seabass weighing about 2kg only attack top-water baits: it is a wonderful landscape  with extremely combative fish that you can fishing from the shore as well as from the Kayak.

There are a lot of opportunities in this area, which is still not much exploited for fly fishing, though it is very productive if you fish in the right way.
