Sailfish leader and hook set ups

I've seen them whack resin heads over and over - but what a soft head does is collapse when the fish bites down on it exposing the hooks better.

Changing student's style

Really interesting question. I lead off all my full day classes with a discussion and demonstration of styles. Its a revelation to many students. So YES, particularly when I can see that for many reasons a style just isn't working for them. Sometimes to completely change someones style allows them t...

The BIG THREE

I really like that trajectory is in here. Poorly understood and not instructed often enough.
