Default Re: setting the hook with glass

Yep, gills on light rods are extra fun. Sorry, but the only suggestion I have is the strip hook set.. I do think that some gills tend to short strike and there is no hook set that will snag them. When I am getting a lot of short strikes I go down in hook/fly size and my hookup ratio usually increased dramaticlly. Some flys don't have enough point gap to hook consistantly. Fly design can have a major effect on hookup. Good luck
