Tighten your loops

Orvis Practicaster

Fly casting is an art form. To non-fishermen, it may look like flailing a bullwhip — but in reality developing an effective cast is a continuous struggle. The Orvis Practicaster ($39) is a silly-looking 4ft rig that’s been dutifully scaled down for practice casting in smaller spaces, including the great indoors. It can’t offer the thrills of shooting for Cutthroats on the Flathead, but it will improve your timing and casting stroke if you give it a chance. Use it diligently and your hated tailing loop might even become a thing of the past, bringing you one flick closer to Lefty Kreh and Joan Wulff.
