Default Setting the hook during a drift

Up to now I've only fished still water, but I'm about to hit some rivers and had a question. I've read about properly mending line to create a realistic drift, and it seems to me that this usually involves a good amount of slack in the line. Doesn't this slack prevent a solid hookset when the fish hits? I'm sure I'm missing something here, I just don't know what it is. Thanks!
