Default Re: Setting the Hook???

With dries in moving water I find just a lift down stream does it, when nymph fishing most of the time I find just a short fast down stream wrist snap is typically enough. I'm just learning to fish streamers so the truth is I don't have a clue with them yet. I've also not developed the habit of the strip set, which is quite important...its one of the things I'm trying to work on this year. Unfortunately, so far this year I do not fish as often as I like to and find I get so excited when a fish hits that nearly everything I know typically flies out the window on the first few.

Attention New Fly Fishers and those just wanting to improve- Join a Fly Fishing Club. They have classes on every aspect of fly fishing for beginners to advanced for free or cheaper than offered elsewhere. Some offer mentor programs. You will make friends with other fly fishers.
