Default Re: Overhead Rod position fighting trout

Hi Racine,

There are times that raising the rod tip helps to lessen the line in the water so it doesn't hang up. It may also help to keep the fish from diving into weeds. I almost always use the side pressure method switching from side to side according to what direction the fish is headed. You always want the fish to go the opposite direction that it wants to go.

In Saltwater fishing flats with coral, rocks or oysters you need to keep the fish from scrapping the fly line across the obstructions. Again it is just useful in certain cases.

Frank
