This miay sound silly but....

Hello All,
Well after having had a lesson in fly casting I can now land a fly on the water. Finally!!!
I am using a 6WT rod with a sinking tip line
Now for the question:
Having landed the fly on the water and it was taken by a very good fish how the hell do you play the fish? Since the reel i have only has a clicker drag I guess thats out so is it a case of just hanging on until the fish is tired?
this fish took me down to the backing 4 times on my first outing!
what is the stratedgy for fighting/playing fish? It seems so different to lure fishing.

Any advice welcomed

Cheers

Stu
