Default Re: Overhead Rod position fighting trout

Big Cliff, excuse me for not seeing the obvious here but what exactly is the logic? Does it save fine tippets, save your rod tip or is avoiding hidden obstacles the main reason? I personally believe in sideways constant pressure helps exhaust the fish properly( one sided that allows revival) which is what I use but I've had guides mention this high rod position without rational. For salt water you actually hold the rod at a 45 degree angle to put more pressure on fish(heavier tippets). Inquiring minds want to know?
BTW, thanks for all the replies fellas...
