I really suggest joining a fly fishing club and finding a member who's nice enough to get you casting right, right from the start. The worst thing you can do is learn wrong, then have to break bad habits to learn the correct way. Like using your wrist instead of your arm. I definitely recommend watching a bunch of youtube videos to familiarize yourself. If you do plan on learning on your own, record yourself casting so you can hopefully see what you're doing wrong and correct it.(like creeping backcast, and not stopping at the end of your casts)
Check out Lefty Kreh's tutorials.. Best salt water instructor you can find. (RIP)

I found a cruising school along the shoreline and got set up for a shot. The fly landed just ahead of the school and within half a second the line came tight. After a couple of minutes of wrangling the fish with the very light rod, twenty six inches of redfish slid into the net- Nice! I ended up losing the crab so I switched to the 6 weight and caught one more 23" red and a 17" trout to round out the catch. Not a bad stroll in the flats this morning!What rod and reel do you use

You could only learn bad habits trying to cast without the feedback of line weight, and any fish you caught would abuse them.
