Advanced Fly Casting School was born in Rome during the year 1987.

Tuition is strictly managed by his founder Piero Letizia, a professional internationally.

The technique taught is the  “PL & EC” (Progressive Lines & Easy Casting) a evolutionary method which allows to easily make complex casts and strategic  presentations.

By way of example, the basic elements are mentioned below

  • Accurate selection of equipment with particular reference to the relationship between the ROD (Action – Length – Power), Line (Profile – Weight) and Tippet (Measure – Power), all of them related to the fishing spot and type of fishing

  • Progressive acceleration during the back and forward casting actions (never exceeding the sufficient power to use), working on a wide and straight plane, high in the back and low in the front, as to present first the fly, than the tippet and at last the fly-line

  • Casting actions under control of tight lines without ellipses

  • Different use of the line’s handling hand (always in a high position between 09-10-11 time) in relation with the casting distance need:

    • Up to mt. 20-22 – maintaining the tension between the wider ring of the hand
    • Over mt. 20-22 – starting the use of the specific double acceleration in wide spaces, from 11-10-09 to 06-05, depending on the speed requested
  • Grip the rod handle with three main fingers with support of the palm. Main functionality:

      • Thumb – apply power and stop the Rod on vertical position for the control of narrow loos (micro-loops)
      • Middle and Index – perfect grip of the handle to manage the rod in different positions to generate different and complex presentations
      • Palm – as pin function, it’s the way for an additional increase of power 
  • Additional Casting Action to generate complex presentations as the generation of the “Mending in the Air” which is the first modern evolution in fly-casting by the signature of AFCS

A spiral in the air while the presentation is already done is one of the results by the use of  PL & EC casting technique!

Didactics is supported by a theoretical training course based on the rationalization of key concepts that allow:

  • reach an optimal level of casting skill in a short time
  • acquire analysis elements for “self correction” both during fishing and practicing
  • be able to make correct evaluation of the technical equipment
