    I can see what you mean. On a dry or nymph, when you get a take, you need to apply a little pressure with a little sideways motion to set the hook. When stripping a booger, when the fish takes it, you're on. I was trying to say you don't have to Bill Dance it out of the water like on a bass hook-set.
