About Me

My name is Cosimo and live in Italy in a village called Botticino. Not far from the lake of Garda, halfway between Milan and Venice.
I started to tie Classic Salmon Flies in the early 80' when one day with a great friend called Jim Schaff and another called Arthur Taylor have had the opportunity to be present at the show in San Mateo.
Jim taught me how to build Bamboo Fly Rods and Arthur gave great supports.
In those days I began to attend people like Schwiebert, Mel Krieger ( fished together in British Columbia ) George Grant,......great friends in Roscoe like Ralph Graves, and My mentor Poul Jorgensen ( I rember one day in the 1990 watching together the Soccer match Italy VS Argentina....He was for Argentina....great discussion but we were friends. I knew the Dettes, Vinciguerra, Paul Philoppone, Wulff... and many others
Sunday, the best Hookmaker I have know.
Steven Fernandez ...an artist
In Europe great people like Belarmino Martinez and splendid Megan Boyd..... Bas Verschoor.....
I feel really lucky to have met these people because they were first of all Friends.
All have given me something important....
Still member of the AFFM and for long time of the FFF , Trout Unlimited and ASF
I stopped  10 years ago to tie and to build Bamboo Rods....
Now, retired, I would like to start again with the Classic Salmon Flies but find another World. completely different.
A world where the most important point is the business.....and speculation. The rest doesn't matter....
I'ld be curious to know what Poul and Lee Think
