A small group of friends from ASD May Fly Bologna, in October 2012, met on the banks of Alto Reno to celebrate the magic of bamboo reeds. That encounter, which was born almost for the game and which they attended each year more and more enthusiastically, has become Alto Reno Fly.

This year, with the sponsorship of the Municipality of Alto Reno Terme and in collaboration with the Pro Loco of Porretta Terme, the event consolidates a new dimension. The event will take place in the fascinating center of the historic town: in the spaces of the nineteenth-century prisons which has now been restored and converted into a culture centre, in the gardens of the adjacent Parco Roma and in the salon of Hotel Roma, next to the park itself.

At the 6th edition, the international environment evolves, the official guests will be even more numerous, coming from different areas of Europe. There will be even richer and more diverse content, always linked to “classic” fly fishing. Together, we will make a small journey through time to discover what was and still is, fly fishing in Apennine environments.

A journey between ancient and modern artisan equipment, artificial flys, books, environment, history and fascinating stories. The ancient town of Porretta Terme, surrounded by secular woods of the Alto Reno, on 30 September and 1 October 2017  will welcome fishermen, prestigious guests, rodmakers and fly tyers. A precious opportunity to confront with many friends sharing a great passion.

An event for those who can not resist the beauty of fly fishing.
