A few years ago. Jumped a wake. Lost a Winston XTR/Islander LA4.0 out of my tamer. It flew over my head. I was inches away from catching it. Damn. Live and learn.
A couple of thoughts: velcro the tamer to the combing. It's the wobble that starts the ball rolling. Sandwich the the fly/tippet beween two pieces of velcro on the outside of the tamer. Don't run full throttle with the rod in the tamer. The tamer rocks.
One cast can change your day...maybe your life.
