It also helps to keep your rod tip pointed at the fly and low...even just breaking the surface of the water! Keep you stripping hand in contact with the flyline at ALL times and learn to "slip-(or strip) strike" with a sharp, quick pull of the line toward you. When the line tightens or straightens, slip strike, then raise the rod swiftly in the horizontal plane. Do this, and you will have more hook-ups! Oh, yeah, and keep your hooks sharp
