Bella Italia - "A River Runs Through It"
After several weeks, a lot of money, and more than a few headaches, I finally received my Italian fishing license last week and was able to make one of my long held dreams a reality - I finally got to wet a fly on the nearby Brenta River. Those of you who read my blog regularly will recognize the Brenta as the river that flows through scenic Bassano dal Grappa. Although I managed only to land one medium sized brown trout it was an unbelievable experience, which I'm sure will not surprise anyone who knows me well. Since the Brenta is so close, I'm quite sure that I'll be up there almost every weekend until the end of the season in late September.
