Dumb Question Regarding Hooksets
I mainly fish either a 3 wt or a 4 wt rod, depending on the stream.
I seem to hook and lose more fish when I am fishing my 3 wt. I am wondering if I need to set the hook harder when using the 3 wt. Since it is not as stout as the 4 wt, do I need to apply more pressure when setting the hook? I am wondering if the hook is not going in as deep since the rod tip flexes so much more than the 4 wt.
Any ideas? As I stated, this only seems to be a major issue when fishing the 3wt, it does not happen as often when I fish the 4 wt.
