My name is Stefano Ticchiati, I was born in 1974 in La Spezia in northwest Italy.
I started fishing at the age of six, thanks to my father, practicing all types of fishing until the middle of the 1990s when I began fly fishing and fly tying.
Living near the sea, it has been natural for me to improve my technique with saltwater fly fishing and I’ve achieved satisfactory results catching seabass, bluefish, pompano, and false albacore
To match my varied fishing, I tie many kinds of flies, including dry and wet flies, nymphs, streamers, and flies for saltwater and, sometimes for fun, I tie spey flies, salmon flies, and Carrie Stevens flies.
I have shown my flies in various Italian fly fishing clubs and I have attended some shows here in Italy, in particular, Fly Tying Experience.
I’m very proud to take part in this fabulous fair!
