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
Thanks allot jerk! At least you got one in. I didnt even get a bite.
