Re: Yard Practice ?
The leaders I use for practice casting are dead ones that had seen better days when fishing on the river. I usually just tie in a couple of additional sections of tippet getting me down to something in the 4x range or larger for bigger rods. Nothing special here, just enough to give me something to cast with. The yarn on the end makes a big difference in my experience. It also makes that leader last longer.
