I've never done much casting without water but to the above; I seriously doubt it. There is so much overthinking and hair splitting going on today regarding fly lines that if I were to believe it all I would have to own over 125 lines for the 20 or so rods I have. Along with all those various lines I'd need many more reel spools and would have to be cleaning the lines and coating them with some compound to make them cast farther frequently.

With all of that going on my fishing time would be cut somewhere around the 50% mark. Don't worry over the lawn ruining your line but remember that fishing is what they are for
