This may be a stupid suggestion, but I would make certain that I'm taking up enough slack out of my float line as it comes back to me from upstream. If you have too much slack in the line, you aren't going to feel a strike or notice it in time if the fish takes the fly and makes a run. Obviously you don't want to pull up so much slack that you are jerking the fly around in an unnatural manner. I just started, so this may be incorrect, but it seems like it would be a slight factor IMO.
