Default Re: Dumb Question Regarding Hooksets

Posessed, I mostly believe, there are no dumb questions about FFishing. (Especially the set.)
Wabi, and Fred are on it. Again.
The shortest distance between two points is a straight line (literally).
Flex of the rod isn't an issue if you pull on the line. It's faster too.
I have had similar issues with my switch rod, softer flex/longer stroke.
I just pull the line tight first, then set/sweep sideways and down-stream..
Never talked about it before, but the amount of slack on the water probably shouldn't be longer than your arm stroke. Not too tight, nor too loose.
Now there's a challenge.
