Learning to Fly Cast
Learning to cast a fly rod is a bit about practice. First, the practice must be on dry land. Don't even think of starting this process in a stream or any other body of water.
Finding a Place to Practice the Fly Cast:
The only really important things is that you have space and that the surface you'll be dragging you line across will not cause your line harm. The amount of space you will need will be approximately 40 feet in front and behind you. A nice grassy field is ideal.
You need to have your line, including backing, fly line, and leader installed and ready to go. For help on leaders and knots visit our PAGE on leaders and nail knots.
