Default Casting fly line without the rod.

I thought some of you might like to try this to get used to the dynamics of casting.

Do it all the time in the living room, back cast goes through the doorway into the kitchen, forward cast goes into the conservatory, 35ft in total, drives the dog nuts.

I had one of the joan Wulf casting tools(sold it on here.) for just keeping my hand/arm co-ordination going in the winter in the warmth of the sitting room.Great teaching tool.But.It was amazing when I took it to the fishing club.how many folks could not get it to work
