Default Re: Propper hook setting and rod guides

Good post, Ard. I think what happens most often when one "misses" take after take on dries is that they are not really "takes". The fly never makes it inside the trout's mouth; the trout just appears to the angler to be hitting the fly.

Then it's time to switch to an "emerger" the same color and size (or a little smaller), and if you don't have one, to carefully snip the palmered neck hackle, unwrap it and let it dangle.
