Rogério Batista: Paulo César Domingues da Silva is named as one of the first fly fishermen in our country, which noted the mode at the end of the 40s by American as Outdoor Life, Sports Afield, Field & Stream publications. In addition to the book “Stories of a fisherman” and “Fishing with fly”, Paulo César published in 1993 a video called “Or ABC do Fly”, which was a milestone for the diffusion of this modality in Brazil.
