The world's best flyfishing site.


Stripping

Removing line from the reel in preparation for that really BIG cast but which usually results in a tangle of line caught up around your feet or a load of line in the water that wont shoot.

The retrieval of line that has been cast in order to keep the line taut as the fly floats back towards you after an upstream cast. Uses the same term as above because the end result is the same.

Removal of roe from a female fish or milt from a male fish for artificial fertilisation in a fish hatchery.

Removal of clothing e.g. after stepping into deep water whilst wading or before having sex. Stripping to have sex is a whole lot more fun than stripping after stepping into deep water or for artificial fertilisation.
