Sipsey 03/05/2006

What a wonderful day to be outside enjoying the great was good today...caught fish on wollybuggers,nymphs and drys....I had a little trouble breaking off with #6 tippet...Is this a common problem when you swap from a slow action mid flex to a faster action tip flex? Or is it just the old baitcaster set the hook habit.
