Default Re: Controlling the Big-uns

Side pressure, heavier leaders, heavier rods, slack lines... yep.

Your two legs can beat up a fish very quickly depending on how much real estate you can cover. Try dragging a fish from where it wants to be by simply walking further on the shoreline opposite of it.

Big Browns always fight dirty,especially in Rivers as they know every inch of the habitat.
As previously mentioned,I have also found sidesticking has helped,as well as using heavier Leaders & Tipits.
I now use either a Shock or Furled Leader,because of their stretch they protect The Leaders/Tipits,after continually being Busted whilst using 4-6lb Leaders/Tipits..
At times I also have had to run along The Edge of our Local Lake,whilst winding furiously to get the Slack Line Backing onto The Spool,after Sidesticking,Fish have turned & come in closer.
Brian.
