Learning on still water will be a lot different than doing the same with a current at your shoulder. In this case, (still water) I would think that finding videos of 'how to' would be helpful. Current; a nice gentle 2 mph for instance makes line management easy. It would also save you from learning on still water and then taking the rig to a river and running into things that didn't happen at the lake shore.

I agree with Fred you have a Nice Cannon,which is capable of Mighty Distances,by the way what size Projectiles can it throw with The 770 Grain Line,as I imagine,as you mentioned it does it quite easily ??
I just spotted this, the big Winston rod uses an 875 grain line and although I have not used anything larger than a 2/0 un-weighted salmon fly I'm sure it'll toss larger stuff. The problem would arise once the fly became so big and heavy that it sinks too deep during the set up of a cast that the line can not rip it from the water.
My experience albeit limited is that as the payload size & weight increases the range and the ease of casting respond in negative ways.
