Where can I practice casting?

A good place for beginners to practice casting into the water is on an open pond or lake in an area with minimal trees, brush or weeds along shoreline. In this situation, you may want to leave your fly on the end of your line (in the event that you can actually catch something).

How often should you practice fly casting?

Every day is best, but 3-4 times a week is certainly adequate. I have found the best practice sessions are usually 15-20 minutes long, for me in the evening after work. I like to leave a rod rigged and ready in the garage that I can quickly grab and head to the back yard.
