Default What to do when....

While out fishing yesterday I had an occurrence that left me scratching my head. I was nymphing a deep run. At the end if the drift I lifted my rod tip, and feeling no resistance began to pull in some line to cast back upstream to start another drift. It's at that moment I felt a fish take the nymph. It was a very soft take, and did not give a good hook set. Sure enough the first time the fish shook hard the hook came out. I was wondering if any of you veterans and could tell me what I did wrong and how better to handle a situation like that in the future.
