Default Re: Piling up of my line

Great replies, thanks to you all. I'm going to try and get out again tomorrow and we'll see how it goes. The following quote brought up another question.

[QUOTE=Frank Whiton;11345[The best and longest floats comes when you have folds in the line like an accordion. [/QUOTE]

I did often have the 'accordion' effect. Once I got a rise to the fly even. However, by the time I tried to set the hook, the fish had already spit out the fly. With all that zig-zaggy slack in the line there was no way (at least no way that I could figure) to get that slack out and set the hook before the fish "Pa-tooey'd" the fly.

Thoughts?
