What’s captured below is arguably the best thing that can happen to a fly angler, a dream situation. Filmed during a baetis hatch, this video documents that perfect moment when a rising fish bites into a dry fly and the hook is set at the exact right moment.
Did you see how many monster fish were rising to eat the hatch in that video. This is a situation most fly anglers dream of, and luckily this angler was there at the perfect time. As you just saw the fish rose to eat the dry fly and the hook was set perfectly. Couldn’t have gone any smoother.
Let this video be an inspiration to you for your next fly fishing adventure. It will serve as the near perfect situation to try and replicate in your local river or lake.
