Keep on stripping

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.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
