Your rod is too cheap.  Fly fishing is a rich mans game.

kayak or wading?

River bank. I kept hooking the grass, tangled lines, shot it a few times but no dice.

 PM Brother Brian. I once saw him teach an epileptic cripple how to cast a fly rod. (Me). 

And he taught someone else how to do it, and that dude learned and caught a big trout (Pete).

Everyone goes through it.

 

It's called a learning curve.

 

You won't do any fancy long range work till your form is grooved.

 

 

And then a lot of times it will be seemingly effortless.

Get a good P5230043.JPG.ac9405e37cec8aeb618896bc3d93517b.JPGshooting basket and not one of those cheapy mesh types . A good one like the Orvis ones or similar do wonders at controlling line especially when it's windy.

I made one with zip ties maybe it sucks. I think the shooting head was also making it so I was picking up tons of muck since the tide was going out and it wasn’t that deep. 
 

I’ve taken two lessons and I do well on grass but then I get to the water and suck balls.
