Tuscany fly fishing: (Upper Tiber River) The Tiber River is named after Tiberinus, Etruscan King of the mythical city of Alba Longa, a city on the banks of the Tiber prior to the founding of Rome by Romulus and Remus. Fly fishing the upper Tiber River, approximately 120 miles north of Rome and 45 miles east of Florence, is a strictly no-kill tail water fishery with a thriving, self-sustaining population of trout and grayling. Many large fish are often spotted, some even caught.
