Vito Rubino is the first certified tenkara guide in Italy. He guides and holds events and clinics in many parts of Italy, but primarily in central/southern Italy, around Rome, but also in a wide range of areas throughout Italy.
“When Tenkara USA brought the Tenkara method to the the western world, and I discovered it, it was love at first sight. I knew it was the method of fishing perfect for me and for Italian streams.
I left western fly fishing to embrace totally Tenkara and rediscover simplicity, nature and freedom. Every time I fish Tenkara it’s like when I was a kid: just a fixed line rod, a fly and all the freedom of the world.
I also hold courses and events to spread traditional Tenkara.
Italy it’s the perfect place to combine history, tourism, wonderful food and Tenkara.
From the wild and hot southern Italy, to the historical center like Rome and Florence to the Dolomitic north.
You can visit the Colosseum, and in one hour time get lost in a wild stream fishing for wise and tough native brown trouts.
I can take care of everything for you all over Italy: accommodation, travel to the river and also to the touristic places, permits, licenses and so on.
And if you don’t have the gear and equipment with you no problem, I have it for you.
You just have to take care of two things:
Enjoy Italy and… fish!
