Re: Cool product from RIO
There is also a technique for setting the hook with thin leaders/tippet called the slip set. You relax your line control hand and raise the rod letting the line slip through your control hand allowing the line weight to set the hook gently.
I have a tendendcy to get a little over excited sometimes and forget to relax thus snapping the tippet and losing the fly and the fish. This shock gum looks like it could solve the over reaction, over excited problem. Gotta try it. Thanks.
