Re: Italian Fly Casting Technique
OK, the DVD is "The Italian Style of Casting" by Massimo Magliocco. You cast in 2-deminsional plane, no pauses, always keeping contact with the line. Usually you cast at a 45 degree angle...or flatter. You use a modified (minimized) double haul. Like a traditional cast, you do a variety of casts off of this stroke.
That's about as good as I can do. There's a school in England that teaches it.
