Yeah.... and what about the whole raise your rod as high as you can above your head when a fish is on.... been seeing that one for years.... seems like all the blood would run out of your arms pretty fast.... why not put that reel seat/butt up against your chest and pull....

I lean down all the time, helps me concentrate. I used to do the same when I bass fished in tournaments and I witnessed many of the tourney guys do the same, so it is not just a fly bro deal.

Tell you what. If/when I see that first tarpon follow my fly I'll probably go full crouch.
Ever notice how you tend to lean forward when trying to see something a long ways out? It's not that being 6" closer helps, just natural body language.

Now should that tarpon happen to eat my fly I'm also hopeful it will help from keeping the $hit from running down my leg.
