Hi, Do you always see the big fish that you catch? I never seem to catch any fish unless I see them. Is that normal or are there fish hidden that you can't see in the deeper water or in the fast water? How do you land them? I have hooked a few big fish(that I saw) but even when running up and down the river they eventually come back on me and create so much slack and then get off. Any tips?
Thanks in advance
Bill
P.S. I am hooked Smile

Depends on the river and if they are feeding on dry flies.
If they are feeding on nyphs, they are much harder to spot.

A couple of tips for slack:
- don't pressure the fish too much early on or you may turn him towards you.
- keep the rod in front so you can pull up when they run at you.
- move up/down the bank to help remove slack.

Have fun!
