Hi, I'm Matteo Lavezzini owner of Lavezzinifly.
I'm in fly fishing since I was 18 and started fishing for shads in Taro river with the streamer.
Saltwater fish that go up the fresh waters in the breeding season, wonderful fish to approach the fly. Then came trout, chub and finally the great love for grayling fishing. I was taught, and I have increasingly deepened, the technique of nymph fishing in the waters of the Alto Sarca, then I learned the technique of dry fly on the Alto Chiese.
Over the years I have been able to fish from the Apennine streams to the various rivers of the Alps: the Adige, its tributaries of Trentino, the rivers of Lombardia, Veneto, Alto Adige and Friuli.
For fly fishing I also traveled abroad, to try new emotions and experiences that I was able to share with dear friends and people who still today I call "my masters". Came Austria, Slovenia, Croatia and the Scandinavian countries: Norway and Sweden.
In all this, there is a great passion, which then transformed in work, for the fly tying.
It has always fascinated me to be able to tie flies by myself to go fishing: nymphs, dries, wet flies, streamers. It's an infinite world and you never stop learning and experimenting. Synthetic materials blend with natural ones, to give life to more or less realistic imitations, which allow you to catch a fish: fantastic. Tying needs time, calm, passion, patience and practice. There are no tricks, it is handmade craftsmanship. It is an art.
In 2016 the first version of my website www.lavezzinifly.it was born which was then revolutionized in 2018 in the version you see today and which is constantly updated.
I gone in many fly fishing clubs where I tied and presented my flies. I have also participated in several fairs and events dedicated to fishing.
In March 2019 I opened my shop "Lavezzinifly - Fly Fishing & Outfit" in Bussolengo (VR) Italy, at the foot of the Alps, on the Adige river and a step away from Garda Lake.
Here you can find all my flies, tying materials, equipment and clothing for both fishing and leisure.
In my shop you can find the products of world leader companies in the sector, quality and service first.
I am also a fishing guide. In 2018 I successfully attended the Trentino Fishing course and subsequently in 2019 also the Aigupp course.
For me, the fishing guide service means giving people a wonderful experience outdoors, among clear waters, on wild fish, with dry fly, nymph, streamer. At high altitudes or in the rivers of the valley.
I have had several experiences over the years, accompanying expert anglers, world athletes, newbies, both Italian and foreign. We can best organize for more day experiences. I guide one or two people at a time, to ensure the maximum of my service.
I also have a YouTube channel, which you can always find under the name “Lavezzinifly”. Here you will find both the video tutorials, to tie my flies step by step, and the very appreciated fishing videos. The channel is always updated and always full of new contents, subscribe to receive the news!
