I watched a guy at Bennett doing this.. He didn't ever put the fish on the reel, he just put the reel n his armpit and bunched the fly line up in his hands.. Now I wish I had gotten his name or info..

Good luck, hope someone with experience comes along and answers that for you...

Leo, are you at all able to raise the rod tip just before you start reeling in line? This should help pick up some slack after casting.

There's a fine line between fishing and sitting there looking stupid.
