Remember, "you aint bass fishin"!
When I swing a wet they usually hook themself ( violent take of the fly), when I am using a nymph or eggs a quick lift of the rod is enough. Just my own experience on lake Ontario tribs.

Good luck

This is hilarious.

Good stuff..I've heard differing opinions on this so it's nice to read through the philosophy behind the approaches.
