Q: “My reel drag used to be really smooth, but now, when a fish pulls off line, it’s jerky, and I’ve lost several nice fish because of it. How can I make the drag smooth again?”
Q: “Three years ago you taught me to swivel my body and take my arm low and far back to become a more efficient caster. It has really helped me, especially with big flies or when I’m casting into the wind. My problem is that guides on a flats boat don’t want me to make this type of cast. They claim that when I swivel back and forth, the boat rocks, which creates waves that can spook fish. Do you have any suggestions how I can fix this problem?”
