b) Andrea mentions in his article on the tenkarabum web site that this style of fishing is practiced today by few people, even in the area where it originated and has existed for centuries. With only a few people fishing this technique are there companies which make the rods and horse hair line, or do folks rely on small custom shops or MYO ( make your own) gear?

Thanks,
David


I asked him the same question in my blog comments.
In short he says there is no specific valsesiana rod. He's in contact with a rod maker in order to create a specific rod. He also says horse hair lines are not available in shops. Fishers create lines for themself.
oh... he says also he would have present a line to me... but he didn't .....yet!:)
I must return to Valsesia :)
Bye

Thanks for the reply. It will be interesting to learn about the rod he develops. How it is similar or different from tenkara rods.

Based on the discussions I've had with him about rods, I expect it will be longer and stiffer. Perhaps not longer than the fully extended Ito, but definitely stiffer.

Looks like Sakakibara-san had much fun.
I would love to come to Italy someday to meet and fish with those Valsesiana guys.

Thank you David. Bravo.

It looks like Sakakibara-san made dear friends and may have learned as much as he taught others during his visit.

Was Arturo Pugno tying a horse hair line near the end of the second video?

I see there are also many nice pictures and description of the meeting of two different social cultures that developed similar fishing cultures or technologies though thousands of miles apart. Apparently driven similar stream conditions.

And as a bonus at the bottom of the page another subject and video and the advice "that the first thing the angler must learn is how not to be seen by the fish." :!:

I'm glad to read this post on the traditional fly fishing technique in Italy

This is an interisting page, it is in italian.

traces of italian valsesiana are found on ancient painting dated 1730
