Tail Water Tevere
A No-Kill fly fishing reserve, one of the most famous ones in Italy, began to receive praise at an international level after the world fly fishing championships were held there. The 7-km long ZRS Tail Water Tevere is listed by the Fly Fishing Fly Tying magazine among the top 10 rivers in Europe, the upstream reservoir of Montedolgio that regulates a constant flow of water at a temperature that even in the hottest months is never above 9 degrees, which makes the river the ideal habitat for trout and grayling which reproduce naturally thanks to the above conditions.
The river is celebrated for the abundant hatches which are guaranteed make an exciting day, for the many cuts that catch and for the environment that surrounds it, where deer and fawns are not a rare sight while you’re fishing!
The fishing season runs from the 1st of May to the 31st of December, with abundant hatches and numerous catches during the months of November and December despite being well into the winter.
Permits and membership of the Mosca Club Altovevere), which allows access to the reserve can be obtained directly at our facility, which is also home to the Mosca Club and the IBRA (Italian Bamboo Rodmakers Association).
