Re: Getting fish to the reel/drag
Simple answer that I've used for years was the drag is set at (as closely as reasonable) at 40% to 50% of the breaking strength of your tippet. 6# leader = 2 to 3# of drag. Good reason for this: as you raise your rod tip the guides provide extra 'drag' due to line friction.
