Default Re: Set, Swirl, Whine

Yea Larry, I hear! Nothing worse than flossing a fatty.
My thing is a tip down, slow strip set. In lou of saying "god save the queen" before rod setting.
I think it's one of the hardest things to learn, but pays big dividends.
Since most of us come up fishing dries first, (and rod setting) it is a real extra effort to learn it!
I picked it up streamer fishing, and swear by it now for dries and indy fishing most of the time.
If you miss'em, you only moved the fly 6" or so, just continue the drift, maybe still get one.
Not sure it would have helped in this case, but I miss fewer now because of it.
Nice creek, I'll bet the big guy comes back, same time next year!
