Hook Set at the End of Every Drift

December 24, 2019 By: Erin Block

Nymphing is an art of the unseen, writes Domenick Swentosky, “and no matter the material attachments we add to the line for visual aid of a strike, trout take our flies without us knowing about it — probably way more often than we can imagine. That’s why it’s best to end every underwater drift with a hook set. Do this with nymphs and with streamers, at the end of every dead drift presentation, and you’ll find unexpected trout attached to your line.” Read more on hook setting at the end of every drift, via Troutbitten.
