Default Re: Little tricks to share

Retrieving flies from trees or underwater can be tricky at times...a friend showed me this little trick if the fly isn't to deep or too high up in the tree...point the rod at the fly and slowly strip the line in until the tip top engages the bend of the hook...I stress slowly since we don't want to wreck the tip...and from there, simply move the rod in the same direction while you were stripping in the line...hook comes free, fly saved and no stress on the rod or leader from tugging.

Cheers,

MontanaMoose
