Great feel -
I bought this for my boys who are newbies to fly casting. I have found that I probably enjoy it just as much. It has a remarkable natural feel and can be used anywhere fast and easy. This practice caster is not a cheap rod but one that feels good enough to fish with. Good for novice and those who want to keep the feel of their fly cast between outings.
Well worth the money -

I bought the PractiCaster yesterday and I can already see improvement in my cast. I've even brought it to work today and spent some of my free time perfecting the skill. This is a great product - not only for practice, but also for assuaging the winter blues when the streams are covered in ice and snow.
Excellent to learn with this rod -

Off season fun -
High quality rod sections. Works great indoors in rooms with higher ceilings--watch the fan. Works well outside in confined space.Has actually helped with my loop.
Great Annoying Product -

The practice caster is awesome. I love annoying my wife and two dogs by practicing all over the house and trying to drop the fly right in front of them...Thank you Orvis

Wow. This practice kit is awesome. It is so handy as it requires little setup prior to use. As I have a New Zealand trip in early 2015 planned, this rod has enabled me to finetune my limited casting skills so that I should be able to cast accurately to fish. I have been informed that the water is so clear that the trout are extremely wary.

I have been fishing for over 30 years and am now just teaching myself how to fly fish. I purchased the PractiCaster for my son and I to practice together. It is extremely well made and a lot of fun. We have already had hours of quality time together and we haven't even hit the water yet.
Practice Fly Rod -

perfect for the office, either just taking a quick break and getting your rhythm back or annoying fellow workers with a tap on the shoulder. Seriously a lot of fun and for the price, one of the best ROI's available.
Wish it had a reel -
By: FloridaBonefisher from Florida
Great fun to play with. It has very good action. The included "line" I'd very easy to see. It really helps you learn to cast a tight loop.
