Massimo is the Technical Director & President of Fly Fishing Masters – Casting Italia. He is one of the most talented fly fishermen in Italy. Massimo, formally a student of Roberto Pragliola, with thirty years experience has become a point of reference in fly casting in Italy and abroad.
John Openshaw, President of Aleka Sports LLC commented, “It is with great pleasure we announce the appointment of Massimo to head up our Pro Team. Massimo holds a wealth of experience and knowledge gained over his thirty year professional career. During 2012 the ALEKA product development team has worked closely with Massimo and our pro team staff in the development of our new 2013 range of fly rods, reels, lines and leader products (soon to be announced).
2013 will mark an exciting year of growth for ALEKA as we expand our global retail outlets which will benefit from existing product sales but also some very unique and exciting new products never seen before in the market”.
Massimo Magliocco added, “It's an honor for me to collaborate with this important company and to join Aleka Sports, because I understand after many years of work in fly fishing, that behind a brand there are important ideas, not only business men but a mix of experience and professionalism that is difficult to find in this world today”.
In addition to working with ALEKA, Massimo collaborates with fishing magazines: Fly Fishing, Fly Line and Pescare. He has written 'Torrenti & Dry Fly' a book/DVD on dry fly fishing in small streams and published videos: 'The Italian casting technique', 'Specific Casts for Fly Fishing', 'Casting, Flies and Strategy' and 'The Italian Casting Technique'.
