The Echo Micro Practice rod arrived last week. Tried it out before the snows arrived and really enjoy using it. When the kids next door first saw me using it in the yard they thought I was a cowboy with a lasso. Their mother explained what I was doing now they come over and offer suggestions on how to improve my casting skills. Pretty brave and smart kids that are only 5 or 6 years old. This spring a Milwaukee based fishing club I belong to is going to teach fly fishing/fly tying to some students at the Waterford High School. So the rod will get used with these kids. I think the rod provides a great way to introduce people to basic fly casting skills.
