Tim isn't just your average rod designer. He happens to be one of the best fly casters to ever roam this planet (don't tell him we said that), he's a dedicated fly angler, and he understands every technical aspect of rod design.

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.
