Fishing Wet Flies

nice video. good tips.
The best tip from the video is to not pinch down on the line when wet fly fishing to let the fish take line from the reel. I learned this tip a long time ago from the old-timers that fished wets all the time. Your hook-up ratio will go way up fishing that way.

For those that like podcasts there was a very good one on wet flies within the past few weeks on the Orvis podcast.

It’s something I want to spend more time doing this year.

Inspired by that podcast, yesterday I fished a dry/dropper up and then switched it up and swung two wet flies back downstream to the car. I still got skunked, but I really felt like I was making things happen.
