Even though I'm nowhere near ready to start working on an MCI, this is a great topic. How many times have we mucked up line control and stepped on our lines! And just when we were about to shoot it? :p
It's usually my friends when we're having a shootout, that gently walks up and steps on the line when that happens :D
Who needs enemies :whistle:

Line management really is a good topic. I don’t normally teach on rivers but Sungai Tiang really drilled it home last week. Stuff that we just take for granted is very complicated when you first start out. Good line management needs to become second nature. It’s funny however, I don’t ever remember consciously learning it - apart from gathering line in fingers which took some thought. I’d been fishing Stillwaters for about 8 years before I started river fishing with fly. I don’t ever remember it being complicated.

Cheers, Paul

Its a hook you use to hang your towels on 😉
Here its just flued onto a par of waders, to hang your lineloops on, for management 😊
That's all I need is more stuff hanging off of me when I'm fishing. Did you ever see the old Disney movie Never Cry Wolf? There is a scene where the researcher is moving his camp. Everything is hanging off his pack and he's clinking and clanking as he walks. I already feel like that when I'm fishing, without towel hooks! :laugh: :laugh: I just KNOW I'd get the hook hung up on willows, while at the same time my net is caught on another willow, the mesh on my vest is caught on yet another, my rod is stuck between two tree branches and the line wrapped around at least one, and my dog's leash is wrapped around my feet.

I think I'll practice Graeme's and Nick's technique. :laugh: :laugh:

Carol, the guy that uses the hook is very minimalistic, not at all like Goofy in the cartoon 🤣

Out of curiosity: does someone use old climber's trick when managing running line?



I have practised it a bit, but do not usually have huge amounts of running line to mess with (running water, long heads).

Just goes to show that you can go through life coiling ropes and retrieving flies and then learn something that should have been taught in school.
