Il Pescatore Completo
Alberto Pugno, a fisherman in the Italian Alps, is the last known practitioner of an ancient style of fly fishing remarkable for its pure simplicity.
This is an excellent film about handmade wooden rods, horsehair lines and hand tied flies. A time when fly fishing was simpler in its approach and yet complex in its construction. We today have such great tools to use in our pescador prusuits that we may not appreciate how much tech has gone into our gear.
I suggest you that tie take a serious look at Alberto’s simplistic flies that work.
Pros and Cons. This is an excellent video about the European nymphing setup and how to fish it.
I will be changing my nymphing style this year. Marshall Estes, webmaster.
