It may seem basic, but setting the hook while fly fishing can lead to a fish in hand … or frustration.
If you haven’t figured it out, frustration takes place after all of the casting and effort to perfectly position a fly for a fish, and you fail to set the hook.
In this video, RIO marketing coordinator Russ Miller shares how to set the hook in three fly fishing scenarios.
Miller shares how to set the hook while fishing with a dry fly, fishing with a nymph and indicator and fishing with a streamer.
What sets this video apart is the different ways Miller shows to set the hook in each scenario.
He shares run strategies and angles that help set the hook and not pull it from the fish’s mouth.
And the better a fly fishing angler is at setting the hook, the more success he or she will have catching fish.
