Keep on stripping

Tip of the day

If you miss a take when stripping in a fly, keep on stripping.
When wet fly fishing down stream and across, swinging flies, lift lift the rod to set the hook on a take. If there's a fish you're in the game. If not, drop the rod down again and let the fly fish on.
The fish will often return and try again or another fish will see the fly and attack.
