An afternoon of friends and fly casting
I received an invitation by mail from “Federico Prato Fly Shop” to attend the “Sage Tour 2018”, a presentation of last generation products that included mainly new models of rods, reels and lines for fly fishing.
Although today I am far from the use of this type of equipment (I am addicted to bamboo and fiberglass fly rods), I thought it would be very interesting to try the “latest fashion cry” and attended the event with a couple of friends this past Saturday.
It was very nice to meet again with friends that I had not seen for a long time, and especially with Federico who gave us a great service and generously provided us with a lot of information about the new world of fly casting.
Federico is the son of Gustavo Prato, an extraordinary bamboo fly rods builder with whom I shared a certain friendship and many unforgettable “philosophical” conversations about the wonderful world of “arundinaria amabilis tonkin cane” and also the art of fly fishing in general.
In this blog there is a post that I have dedicated to him a while back.
Thanks Federico for allowing us to test these modern and very effective equipment!
Here some photos of the event.
