I did Lincoln Park on the monday morning after my sunday night return (jet lag got me up at 5am). It was very slow. There were three other flyfishers and an equal number of gearmen ľall with no takes, although I had one follow.
On the hookset while stripping with two hands: If you're using a heavy enough tippet like 1x or 0x, keeping pulling on the fish with both hands until you are certain it's hooked well. Then transfer hands and strip before you begin winding slack onto the reel. Oftentimes, you can force the fish to run which takes care of the slack line at your feet. I love playing tug-of-war with big coho on the set (it's kind of modified strip-set).
