Rod action and hook sets
 
What affect will rod action have on the hook-set?
The reason I ask is because yesterday evening I went to a local urban spot for trout to fish my new TFO Pro 9' 5wt for the first time and noticed that this rod is a much faster action than the rods I have been using. I also had 3 fish in a row get off the hook after about 5 seconds or so and several strong pulls of the indicator that left me with no fish after the set. I think this may be due to my hook-sets not being quite right with this rod.. I did manage to land one trout as he snatched my fly when I went to make a back cast.
Thoughts? Thanks :)
