I am new to tenkara and just learning. To you all that have been at it awhile--Question: Do you have trouble keeping fish that you have hooked attached until you can land them? I am using barbless hooks, fishing for trout in a river. Last trip hooked 3 landed 1. I don't seem to have trouble using my graphite conventional gear using the same flies, in the same river.

Wondering if the very light tip section of my dragontail 365 is too flexable to get a hook set????? What do you think? Any suggestions?

Thanks Dick
