My son -

I gave my PractiCaster to my son. He is using it to land imaginary flies on top of my grandchildren. He loves it and if he ever lets go of it he will teach his children how to cast.
Improving My Casts by Fishing for Cats -
The Practicaster has helped keep my casting sharp during the cold winter months with the added bonus of great entertainment for our cats!
Can't hold up to the elements -
I was so excited to receive this in the mail and put it to good use. I am not much of fly fisher, so i thought this would really help me practice and become a better fisherman. Unfortunately, it was the opposite. I spent the better half of an hour just trying to tie a fly on to the tip of this gol-darn thing! Then once i got it tied on, the yarn split while i was casting and i lost my fly, so i had to repeat the whole process over again. Finally after several attempts, i got my fly in the water and drifted it like a champ. Hooked in to a trophy 12-13" brown, and then the yarn broke again! I was so frustrated that i packed up and left the river, i will never use that rod again!
Great to improve your casting. -

Bought the PractiCaster to improve my casting and learn some others. This helped a great deal. You can feel the rod while casting and it helps to get the feel of your rod during various cast. Using the Orvis website, the casting videos will help tremendously. Great product.
Orvis Practicaster -
By: EdinScotland from Scotland
Was a tad sceptical however an American friend told me i wouldn't look back. He was right, it's a very nice tool and really does allow you to perfect your cast, or even better, to video it on your phone and see the problems, i had many! For the price of a casting lesson, or less even this will allow you to prepare for the season ahead
Practice if you want to be perfect -

I don't have enough time to be on the water. I bought this and find the action really realistic and fun. I recommend you get one to make the best of your time on the water.

I have purchased this product for my own use and as gifts. It works as described.
Fun and Educational Too! -
The Practicaster is the perfect winter gift for any fly fisher. I enjoy using it indoors on a cold rainy day or outdoors in the sun. Great Purchase!

Works as advertised -
By: TroutCommanderX from Denver, CO
This product works as advertised. Would of gave 5 stars but there was a good sized crack in my cork grip. I didn't think it was worth returning/exchanging since it won't be exposed to the normal use and elements a fly rod would see. Great overall product just check your grip before using.
