” While planning a cruise along the Italian Coast a friend told me to plan a pre-cruise fishing trip to Umbria. I was very lucky to have booked two days on the Nera River with Internationally know guide Luca. I sent my wife touring the sites and I went fishing. Luca picked me up at the hotel exactly as planned, had all the equipment I needed, all permits/licenses arranged and a big grin on his face. I only used his personally tied flies. Once I complied with his “cast shorter” advice, I out fished the locals fishing the river that day. I made some new friends along the river Nera when I hung and lost Luca’s flies in the trees.. Luca would not stop untiil I begged to return to my hotel, a former convent. A high energy, hard working guide! The fish co-operated and I had two successufull days. He even has a great restaurant very c

lose to the river for lunch. The Umbrian experience is a little different, but as enjoyable as fishing North and South America. I highly recommed the experience.” James Whitehurst Clearwater, Florida USA
