The extended family spent 3 weeks in Italy. My brother-in-law and I decided we wanted to go fishing one day. We met Niccolo in a hotel parking lot and he took us up into some of the most beautiful countryside. After stopping for fishing licenses and (of course) an espresso we hit the water. The streams are gorgeous and the fish are huge. He put us on fish immediately and we spent the next 4 hours having a great time.
Then we sat down to lunch - Italian picnic style - during which Niccolo regaled us with fishing stories and stories about life in Italy and Argentina, where he spends his winters. Then we changed streams and went after fish for another 4 hours.
A nearly perfect day.
