I have the top half of several fishing rods. I tried it with yarn, was pretty
good, then I chopped an old 8 wt floater I had laying around, and wow
did it get interesting quickly. I'm not allowed to use it in the house any
because the cat, the pit bull and the pomeranian were climbing
the funiture chasing it.
Ah, but I came on to say, heck yaa,
practise casting ... after a while it becomes
virtually effortless, more accurate, faster and more distance
