How to Control Your Fly Line

What does it to control your fly line

Controlling the fly line while fishing can improve your catch rate and generally make for a more pleasant fishing experience. It is particularly important to maintain control of the line while fishing so that you are able to set the hook and land the fish. You also need to control the line while adjusting its length when you are casting as well as when you transition from casting to fishing.
