Setting the Hook on Brook Trout

Other things being equal, the angler who is most skilled in striking his fish will have a much heavier creel than the one less proficient in this respect. To connect consistently with rising trout demands cool nerves and the quickest of eyes and wrist. The strike must come at just the proper time and with just the proper degree of force. The too strenuous strike will tear the hook away from the fish.

It is a better fault to strike too quickly than too late. If you strike too quickly the trout will be missed clean and not pricked, and will often rise again, but if the strike is delayed and the fish has the chance to mouth the fly he will instantly eject it and will certainly not rise again. Strike with the wrist only at the first suspicion of a rising fish—you can hardly strike too quickly—and with a degree of force in proportion to your tackle and the trout; large trout should be struck good and hard. In the rapids trout will often hook themselves; it is when fishing the still pools and reaches of quiet water that skilled striking is at a premium.
