Ho to all and Greetings from north East Italy

I was born in 1974 in a little town near Treviso in North East Italy and started fly fishing and fly tying in 1998 at the Anglers Opitergium fly fishing club.
At the end of 2004 I took part to my first fly tying contest. This passion drove me to study the Classic fly dressings and at the same time I have been reading lot of books on entomology.
In 2010 I attended a casting course at SLM fly school (TLP techniques and others), then in 2012 the SLM web site ( has displayed a full page dedicated to my flies and in the same year at a fly show in Turin (North of Italy) Alberto Salvini and Marica Cicoria filmed three of my dressings for “Pescavventura” program for SkyTV.
In April 2013 the magazine “La Pesca a Mosca & spinning” published my first fly tying article and in 2014 “DRESSING ITALIANO” blog started publishing some step-by-step dressings of my dry flies, nymphs and streamers.
During all these years I have been fly fishing on many Austria's rivers and streams (Steyr, Moll,Traun, Gail, little Draw,Winkeltal and Willgratenbach) and Slovenia (river Kupa ,Savinja and Sava Bohinjka).
In Italy I prefer to fish on river Piave and Brenta, and I became expert in fishing on the chalk-streams of my area. (Piavesella, Lia and Meschio) Fly tying is a great passion and I love to tie freshwater and saltwater flies and streamers for predators.
I use mostly natural fly tying material and I love the Italian Style of fly tying. I'm an IFTA member (Italian fly tiers association) and SLM instructor (fly casting school) and I regulary organize casting courses for SLM (fly casting school)and sometimes partecipate as a guest  in fly fishing Clubs
Here after are some of the results of national and international fly tying contest I took part in these years:

Hello and welcome to the forum, Loris!

That is a very impressive list of awards! I look forward to seeing some of your patterns, and hearing about the species of fish and fishing opportunities that you enjoy in your region!

For me, the quality of a trout is not measured in inches or pounds, but rather by the journey and circumstances that allowed our paths to cross...

Flyfishing is my love and flytying is my mistress
