Member since November 2016 Siracusa, Italy
Background
Always been travelling for fishing in Sicily with my father and grandfather from my childhood, after my architect degree decided to change life and jump into tourism and adventure trips to work with my passion for fishing and wild places of Sicily and some other hotspots around the world like Canary islands and Africa. Today I guide also wild and adventurous trips in Sicily. I'm also a fishing videomaker and reporter, Shimano Italy ambassador.
Techniques
I love extreme shore fishing, waves, helmet and life jacket off the rocks on deep waters! Especially when is possible to face tunas and big predators, in Sicily there are many remote places where this match is not complicated. I drive crazy looking for Bluefin tuna feeding frenzy to fish with popping rods. Live bait trolling in the right season is another adrenalin technique!
