Not had that problem yet fro the yak yet but its sure to happen someday - had it happen once or twice back in the trout days when using a drogue (a.k.a. big drift sock) from a drifting boat. If it does happen just pull the drift sock line in. If your lucky the fish will still be attached - otherwise take a breath (or count to 10), untangle leader/re-attach fly etc. and get back to the fun. For me the benefits far outweigh potential downsides. Come to think of it we run the same risks when playing fish from an anchored boat or around any other structure manmade or otherwise. It all adds to the fun in the end
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
