“Perfect your cast, but beware of ceiling fans!”
There are three GREAT options:
The Redington Form Game Rod:
ITEM # 5-8012027
When you’re on the water, oftentimes, you don’t have time to focus on mechanics. The Redington Form Game Practice Rod offers beginners and veteran fly casters alike, the chance to tighten and tune their casting and improve form. This rod is also perfect for the angler on the go as it can easily be broken down and thrown into your tote or luggage. The practice rod comes with its own custom tapered Rio fly line, appropriately weighted to the rod for a more accurate experience.
Don’t need practice but looking for some fun instead? The rod also comes with a booklet of games that you can try while relaxing with your pals.
The Echo Micro Practice Rod (M.P.R.):
The Micro Practice Rod might seem like a toy, but it is really a precisely balanced rod, line, and leader.
The action of the MPR and the weight of the line are matched in order to imitate, as closely as possible, the feel of a full-size fly rod.
Because the MPR is so close to casting “the real thing”, the indoor skills that you acquire with the MPR will translate into better casting on the water.
The rope “flyline” provides sufficient drag on indoor rugs to practice roll casting and single hand spey casts.
Business or pleasure?
The MPR is a serious casting tool that also happens to be seriously fun to use.
Tim designed the MPR to precisely imitate the casting mechanics used with a full-sized rod.
Great for backyard practice and cat fishing.
A spey adaptor is available separately to convert your MPR to a two-handed casting tool, while the Double Haul Kit allows you to get your hauls dialed before you hit the water.

The Temple Fork Outfitters – TFO Bug Launcher Office Rod:
The New TFO Bug Launcher “Office Rod” enables you to practice your casting indoors at the office or home. With the Office Rod you no longer need a large outdoor practice field to learn or improve your casting skills. The 3 piece Office Rod has a technically designed highly-visible line with a tapered leader that loads the rod just like a standard fly rod. Practicing roll casts and single-hand spey casts are now possible from behind you office desk. The Bug Launcher is made without a reel seat, just our compressed cork grip. The yellow Bug Launcher logo stands out against a candy apple red blank and is made from general low modulus graphite so there’s less risk of rod breakage when practicing indoors. A must for the long winter months!!
