Luca Barosselli  (Italy)

My name is Luca Barosselli and I am 32 years old. I live in northern Italy. I fish sice my childhood and in 2010 I was introduced to fly fishing. I felt in love with it and it became my only passion. The year after, with the help of friends, I started tying my first flies: both classic and modern.

Since then, with the support of tiers well known in Italy and Europe, I always tried to improve myself, getting new tips and refining my tying technique.

I constantly went deep inside this new magic world and spend a lot of blood, sweat and tears, focusing mostly on the Italian Style where Francesco Palù was the pioneer.

I had a cooperation with the famous teacher Massimo Magliocco, taking care of his tying articles published by some important specialized magazines.

In 2015 I tied at the Forlì Fly Fair for my friend Diego Riggi, founder of Dressing Italiano. And in 2016 I attended the Vicenza Fly Fair at “Fly Fishing 360” corner, an organization which I’m still associated to.

In 2017 I attended again at the Vicenza Fly Fair tying at the desks of “Fly Tying Experience”, a tying group organized by Fabio Federighi, one of my best teachers and a friend. At this Fly Fair I won a Stonfo prize for a tying competition organized by the magazine La Pesca a Mosca e Spinning.

I’m also a pro team member of Gulff Resins, Textreme, Swiss CDC, Dohiku hook and Fulling Mill ambassador. I’m still associated to the Bereguardo Greygoose Club where I share my passion with my friends. In 2018 I took part in the Vicenza fair at the “Pescare Show”and the “Danish Fly Festival”.

My flies go through different techniques, from traditional to modern ones with the use of every kind of materials available.

I try to represent “the Italian style”, born from the great Francesco Palu and subsequently developed and customized by other great builders disciples of his concept of “seeing” a fly.

This innovative style of the 70s and still contemporary in synthesis looks at the construction of a fly as a whole finding a complete harmony between assembly and verisimilitude to the real insect giving priority to the movement of the artificial in the water. Thanks to the perfect mix of materials with different properties and appearance it is possible to obtain a perfect artificial in all its peculiarities.

I fish rivers in Italy and abroad, plenty of challenges where I love trying my flies and push my limits.

I’m conscious to be only at the beginning of a hard and long way, to pursue a path that will allow me to grow professionally.”

I was born 1958 in Wuppertal and growing up in Düsseldorf. Since 1998 I live in Hilden (next to Düsseldorf).
I´m a fisherman since my childhood, but I started flyfishing and tying at the age of 38.
Around two years later I was tying on my first big flyfishing show, the Dutch Fly Fair.
Since this time, I´m tying my flies on shows in Europe and USA.
My favorite patterns are squidflies and shrimps.

Thé Ørgänizátiøn has been very busy for quite a while with the organization of the next Fly Fair which is planned for Saturday May 9 and Sunday May 10, 2020. Many of you, both visitors and participants, will still have fond memories of the Fly Fair 2018 and together with you we want to make the Fly Fair 2020 a great or even greater success again.

Never change a winning team.The general set up of the Fly Fair event will be mostly unchanged. For the venue we have opted for "Forelvisvijvers de Berenkuil",  Berencamperweg 11, in Putten the Netherlands. This beautiful venue can be reached easily by car (A28 motorway exit 9).

At the Fly Fair every flyfisher will find whatever his life style requires. Fly casting and fly dressing material, for every kind of fish be it alver or salmon, and all the hooks and clothes one may dream of from size 36 upwards. There will be plenty of opportunities to be informed about the available industrial and technological fly fishing gadgets and to admire the amazing craftsmanship of the semi-professional fly tiers specially invited to show their handiwork.

And if you are bored with your current holiday destinations, you will be able to explore new possibilities ranging from Putten to Patagonia. Hence our motto: The World of Flyfishing.

A lot of attention is paid to the Fly Fair 2020 in our magazine "de Nederlandse Vliegvisser". This magazine is sent to more than 4,000 members and is recognized as one of the most outstanding flyfishing magazines in Europe. And as a special offer, participating firms will be offered free advertising space in the spring edition. In addition, booth keepers will be put in the spotlight in various digital means of communication such De Digitale Vliegvisser, newsletters, websites and Facebook pages.

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the Fly Fair 2020 en we hope to realize a big event for and by flyfishers. The fair will consist of a complete village of pagodas (25 m2 each) and a large light canvas hall for the fly tiers. Even if the terrain is extensive, we have to warn you in advance that the number of pagodas will be limited. In case you wish to participate, please contact Jan Huisman: huisman.jan@ziggo.nl He will send you an information package, including a reservation form.


The Dutch Fly Fair of 2018 was a big success. We're already preparing the next edition. Of course this event can’t be held without fly tiers! Like last year we hope to meet a lot of them.

On behalf of the organization I’ll be coordinating the fly tying part. Main goal is to organize an amazing event that will be interesting for fly tiers and visitors. If you have any suggestions or questions don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or e-mail: jos@homus.nl.
