Setting the hook seems like a simple thing, but in reality, many anglers don't do it the best way. Join boats.com Senior Editor and fishing guru Lenny Rudow in this short video, to see him demonstrate the best way to set a hook.
It makes perfect sense, right? Speed is the key to a good hook-set, and speed is all in the wrist. Of course, judging when to set the hook is a different matter. Or, even judging whether you should set the hook in the first place. No worries, though—Rudow addresses these matters in How to Fish: J Hooks versus Circle Hooks. Check it out, and you're bound to become a better angler.
