Angry doh!

If you hold a loop while doing the swing, don't let the loop wrap around the reel handle when you hook a steelhead.

It's been a long time since I've read one little sentence that told so much.

Nicely written,

Ouch

Been there and done that. Ever get the chance to see the fish? Only thing I can think of is "snap".

Also

Don't let the reel handle get tangled in your rain gear. Thet gives a quick long range release too. Like SH69 I've been inattentive and guilty of both.
