Default Re: cant get them on the hook?

I had/have the same issues when I fish dry's on small streams, and a while ago I read a article by Kirk Deeter I believe called "answer the phone". He suggests that when you see a strike you should calmly set the hook/ pull the rod up like you are answering a phone call off a table or desk. This helped me alot and kind of broke a jerking bassmaster type set I had, although not perfect it worked. you might give it a try...

I'll be interested in any other posts on here as well

Good luck!
