20. Watch Tom whiff on a bunch of fish. (20 of 21)

Don’t beat yourself up if you lose a few fish. It happens to everyone.

Video Transcript:

- [Tom] But that doesn't mean you'll land all of them. Sometimes it's just that kind of day. What happened there was the fish got downstream of me and it's really hard when they're pulling when their mouth is facing straight upstream and you're yanking them back up the small hooks like these little tiny nymphs I've got on are going to pull out.
No doubt about it, it's going to happen. So don't beat yourself up about it. If that happens to you. You know, if you get a big fish and it's downstream, and it gets off, it's going to happen. Just don't, you know, don't feel like you did anything that was your fault. Sometimes you just have weed all over yourself. Much nicer.
That's the way I like it. Stay upstream of me so you don't get off. ♪ [music] ♪ - Just shut up Jeremy. Seriously, am I doing something wrong playing these fish?
- [Jeremy] No.
- That fish took on this wing which doesn't always happen with an indicator.
