Default Has any one tried to fly cast with no rod

Hello:

A few years ago I was reading a book that had a few pages about casting a fly line with you hands, with out a fly rod just your hands doing the work. I can't remember which book it was that I read. But at the time I thought it was kinda funny.

Until this past summer when I tried it. At first casting a fly line with your hands I thought was impossible. I tried anyways, after a while of playing around I started to get a bit of distance. At the last local (to my area) club meeting I was able to get around 65 ft, that was roughly estimated.

After The Christmas holiday's I started to get curious if anyone has tried to cast a fly line with out a fly rod. Just having your line in hand and casting away.

Cheers: Dave
