A different approach for a different view
The first evening is devoted to an introduction to the world of the TLT. With the use of video, made during recent trip to the Academy in the U.S., the technique devised by Italian Roberto Pragliola is compared with the traditional. But the TLT is not just throwing technique and the evening ends talking about those topics that still give a meaning to our fly fishing. .
