Tuscia, the province of Viterbo, has many small streams running through an unbelievably green area. A few are classified as “trout water”
but, to be honest, they hold salmonids only for a short period after the opening day (end of February). For the rest of the year, anglers can face themselves with cyprinids, still very hard to be caught due to the intrigued nature, overhanding trees and bushes and so on.
What makes these places really unforgettable, is the fact that these streams (locally called “Rios””) cross the land of our ancestors, the Etruscans, whose caves and tombs can be seen all around us. While passing and tumbling on rocks and tufa, they dig into the earth and form the so called “Forre”, narrow passages carved in the stone…
Some of them are still used for cultural sightseeing tours during the Summer months and in Winter they are transformed into a Nativity scenario.
“Fishing with the Etruscans” is one of the opportunities offered by our beloved land… Don’t miss the opportunity for a “different” holiday!!!
