The presentation of flies in the valsesiana fly fishing happens as naturally as possible, but in this video is not easy to understand. A short insert other videos and you will be easier to understand the technique, because is not easy for me to explain it in English!

Excellent videos, I loved the look of your stream. And the casting is very nice to watch. Not many videos cacth the casting movements so well. I enjoy watching the cast. Reminds me of the olympic ribbon event.
Do you have any issues with line twist?

dmuceni, thanks for the two videos. I enjoyed them both very much.
I liked the video showing the tying the Ishigaki kebari on the vise too.

you're welcome. That fly fishes a lot :)
I use also my friend Ryuta's fly. The first shown in his video

Very effective.
I'll try to take a video while he's at wise.
Bye

I have watched the 'Tenkara -italia' video several times since finding it last fall. I like that at the end he gives the details of the rod, line, tippet setup he is using. 4m rod + 7 m line, a combination I am trying to learn to cast properly, thus far the practice has mostly helped me to better cast shorter lines by getting me to slow down the casting motion. :)

After seeing Ryuta on your web page last evening I was wondering if he is the fisherman in the "Tenkara - italia" video. Thanks for confirming that the two are the same person. He's easy to spot now, one of the few left handed tenkara fishers I've seen on the web. ;)

You have other interesting things on your web page too. I had not seen it before finding it linked on your youtube channel home page yesterday. I will be regularly checking it again in the future.

The bottom fly in this picture I think is the same as the fly at the beginning of the "Tenkara - italia" video.

Yes it's Ryuta fishing, i knew him because of that video :)
It's similar but i'm not sure it's exactly the same fly he uses.
bye.

Today I found a newly posted, July 7th, Mosca Valsesiana video. I think it is Andrea fishing a small mountain stream:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QoFKzM-K1r0

I haven't before seen someone keeping the line in the air while walking so far along the bank as seen in this video, at about the 2" mark. Something I wouldn't have the space to do most places I fish. An interesting technique.

Since pesca alla Valsesiana fishing and tenkara fishing are so similar in many ways. I am curious about a couple of things.

a) is the line attached to the rod tip in a similar way as used with tenkara gear or if a different what method is used ?

b) Andrea mentions in his article on the tenkarabum web site that this style of fishing is practiced today by few people, even in the area where it originated and has existed for centuries. With only a few people fishing this technique are there companies which make the rods and horse hair line, or do folks rely on small custom shops or MYO ( make your own) gear?

Thanks,
David
