The Italian Academy of Fly Fishing - TLT academy
(a project to protect a national treasure )
To understand how the Total Casting Technique (TLT is the acronym ) has contaminated , with its effectiveness and spectacularity, the world of fly fishing in the national scenery, just look on the number of anglers who now use light equipment.
However , the use of lightweight equipment is more and more confused with the TLT.
This confusion is also generated by the fact that the same technique, as it has been disclosed to us, not by its creator but by the various actors in the successive time, ha smarrito, for most, the way of getting the essence, for granting to unnecessary variants, the teaching space that was to the basics that make the TLT a unique and still innovative technique.
These reasons paradoxically contribute to the spreading in Italy (home of the TLT) of a technical mannerism more and more impoverished and far, not only from the intentions of Roberto Pragliola, but also from the natural element of this technique: the water .
In this sense, the Italian Academy of Fly Fishing-TLT Academy must be understood as a cultural operation, which has to safeguard and pass on a technique that is worldwide recognized as unique, as well as the teaching of the man who had devoted a whole lifetime, full of brilliant insights, for deepening and perfecting the cast and has turned this gesture into a true artistic expression.
