My name is Danilo Lazzarini and I am 27 years old. I was born and I live in Rome where I am attending Tor Vergata University.

I have been passionate about fly fishing since I was 12 years old. I have started fly fishing under the directions of Valter and Ennio de Santis, better known as FACOCCHI.

De Santis brothers have taught me casting techniques, the river approach and artificial fly creation. Among other things, FACOCCHIS gave me the opportunity to know about their extremely particular way of artificial flies assembly method.

I immediately understood I was witnessing something of amazing, the flies they showed me were absolutely accurate compared to the real ones.

With patience Valter and Ennio explained to me how they actually built their flies and their innovative principles.

From that day on I have never stopped creating flies myself, with their method that let me understand every single secret. During the years I have created my own personal set of dressing with impressive effectiveness selecting nylon lines, materials and assembly techniques.
