In 1956 Garcia, the distributor for Mitchell Reels in North America, made three demonstration films to help teach people how to fish with a fly reel, an ABU 5000 bait caster and a Mitchell 300 spinning reel. This is the fly-casting film, with instructor and casting champion Johnny Dieckman performing a variety of casts, including a wicked double haul. Remember, this was well before the invention of graphite rods.
