Tail Water Tevere

Sansepolcro (Arezzo- Tuscany)

Near the town of Sansepolcro, the Tevere flows through the Tuscan countryside (about 1,5 hours south of Florence). B elow the Montedoglio Dam, the Tevere is around 80 feet at the widest. It branches often and this makes it easily wadable. The tail water is extremely fertile and full of insect life. There are mainly browns and grayling. The fish range from 12″ to several pounds. The Browns are rather particular and selective to the hatches and require 7X tipped or more for surface activity. They do not fear humans as the stream gets lots of activity.  The river is famous for grayling, it is the most southern river beat where this fish spawns. The constant water flow and water temperature, allow very good fishing throughout the warmest months. This river is restricted to classic fly-fishing only and catch-and-release regulations. Fishing is carried out mostly with dry flies, imitating the very rich presence of mayflies and caddis.

Luca can provide gear , however if you want to bring your own, 9ft 4 to 6 weight rods are ideal for this river.  You should bring hats, sunscreen, sunglasses (polarized), a rain jacket (just in case!!), warm socks for the tail waters. You are welcome to bring your own equipment if this makes your feel more comfortable.
