The old adage for time measurement when setting the hook on a rising trout in slower water is from the time you see the fish is to say to yourself, "God Save The Queen" and set the hook. However, I think this was invented on the chalk streams of England where the water is slow, and when I'm fishing a dry fly on faster pocket water, I set the hook immediately upon seeing the fish. Normally, when I'm a bit rusty on my dry fly fishing, it will take two to five misses before I get it "dialed in" for the day and start hooking fish. Practice makes perfect! Keep experimenting...


Calling Fly Fishing a hobby is like calling Brain Surgery a job.
