About Me

I was born in Bozen, Südtirol, the German speaking Italian province bordering Austria.  I have been married since 1972. I live in the countryside  with together  my wife and 2 four-legged friends (two German Sheprads).   I have two grown up kids who live an work abroad.
I am self employed petroleum engineer and have traveled world wide since 1972.

My Interests

I was first introduced to fly fishing by my father in late 1950's.
I used to  caddy for him as he fished mountain streams and lakes in the Dolmities.   He talked a lot about reading currents, May flies, midges, caddis, casting, tying, flies, etc.   I was pretty bored at first and listened out of respect.  Some years later it all began to skin in.

I find fly fishing relaxing, it allows me to reflect.  I fish only the mountain torrents,  streams and rivers.  I most  with dry fly, catch and release. I used thing nymphing was a waste of time,  but I have changed my time!   I catch and released.

My favorite rods are  G. Loomis LP NRX and GLX, Among favorite reels are  Vivarelli and Able.

Over the year I have fly fished in few places including  Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia,Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia, France, England, Scotland, Ireland, Eastern Hokaido, Japan (Nishibetsu, Shari and Churi rivers),  Kazakhstan (TianShan); Alaty (Russian Federation) Urals & Russian Far East ) , the  USA,  Canada (Alberta and BC) .  However, my favorite trout streams are my home waters.
I fly fish to the exclusions of everything else!

My Media

Favorite Music: Schubert, Bruckner, Hyden, Mahler. Innovative Fly Fisher!
