Welcome to another installment of "Ask an Orvis Fly-Fishing Instructor," with me, Peter Kutzer. In this episode, I demonstrate how to correctly set the hook when you're fishing for trout and other small fish and when you're stripping a fly for saltwater species or freshwater big game. The way you set the hook makes a huge difference in your success rate, so knowing the correct motion for a given situation is important. Many a flats angler has been ridiculed by his guide for losing a fish to a "trout set." Next, we move on to fish-fighting technique. Although the classic fly-fishing pose involves the rod tip held high above the angler's head, this is actually an inefficient use of the fly rod's power. Instead of fighting a fish off the tip of the rod, you want to bend the butt section. Phil Monahan and I use the scale on a BogaGrip to demonstrate how much more force you can generate by fighting "off the butt section."
http://www.orvis.com/sonicwomen Over the years, the most common feedback we've received from female anglers is that we haven't offered any women's chest waders that were truly designed with women in mind. Until now. Introducing our new women's Silver Sonic Waders. After taking input and suggestions from a large number of female anglers, we started over from scratch and designed a wader built specifically for women. We tested them on a wide variety of body types, made tweaks and adjustments, and we think the results speak for themselves. Never again will you have to borrow a pair of waders. We have your size.
I'm an Orvis enthusiast and so I was happy to find this channel! Look forward to seeing more videos. Thought I'd share my first upload: "The Louisiana Marsh: Scenes of a Fly Angler" vimeo.com/231154790
