Fly fishing is a dance that begins long before the desired meet between the flycatcher and its fish. Previous researches, of others and themselves, provide the necessary information for this common man begins to make his own flies ahead, trying to imitate insects and organisms that feed the trouts. And as he prepares his equipment, he feeds the desire to achieve the expected time.

He stops and sees where to make his first launch. We can only hear the characteristic noise of the reel, there is a line that plays in the air and tests great curves before falling gently on the water. Its silhouette is part of nature.
