  3. Stick the pointy end of the forceps into the ground.
  4. Walk back about 25-30 feet, and turn and face the forceps you stuck into the ground.
  5. The fly line should be in a loosely straight line going back to you.
  6. Adjust the distance or fly line accordingly and start practicing your roll casts.
  7. It works great on grass.
  8. You can use a clipboard if forceps are not available.
Are you then casting the forceps?

Like Jackster said, I use a grass leader, which is mono with a dozen or so blood knots with the ends as stubs to catch the grass.
