A soft landing of the fly generated by a presentation through a perfect spiral on the air allows a welcome delay to avoid the dragging and have success.

That is a possible evolution from the PL & EC technique of Piero Letizia


The next three 60% slow down video-clip, and the more video published in this web-site, can give you the possibility to undestund the importance of the use of such sofisticated technique. 




Watching the short video you can see the best action on casting to present a fly in a special way.

The fly pushed streight ahead touch the water, as first, (Front - Downstream) while the fly-line is still flying in a spiral way, up on the air and in the opposite side (Left - Upstream).


This approach allows to delay the dragging effect and icrease chances to reach the success.


In the second video-clip the casting action is carried out folloing the same criteria but producing a wider spiral presentation



In this last section, again, same approach but with a macroscopic very left design of the spira for a longer delay of the dragging.


All the above evolutions are possible if using an innovative casting technique like the PL & EC, based on "rationalized and progressive movements".


Just few tips:


  • Avoid "passive accelerations" - don't use a double haul if not necessary !
  • Use the left hand, as much as you can up tu 18-20 meters, to control the tightness between the first ring of the rod and your hand
  • Apply always progressive accelerations
  • Try to pull and push the line always on a streight plane
  • Try to learn which is the best rod for your skill
