Default Fishing method

Once you've casted, do you hold on to your fishing pole or do you place it on something so you can watch it but keep your hands free. This really applies more toward fisherman who use bait rather than lures or spinners.

When I'm regular fishing I almost always hold on to the pole. On occasion I'll put it down. To be honest, I just don't feel like I have control when the pole is down. I am more of a hands on guy.

I often use a rod holder so that I can keep my hand free, allowing me to multi-task easily. But there are times when I want to relax and just hold on to it, waiting for the fish to strike it.

I don't think I ever put the pole down; I might hand it to someone to hold for me if I absolutely must and if someone is there to help me, but I much prefer to hold the pole and feel what's going on with it.

I don't hold on to the rod all the time. I sometimes use the rod holder while I tie some flies while waiting for the bite.
