What I do, and I'm sure it isn't the 'correct' way to set drag, is to hook the hook on something solid and stable like a dock or tree or something, set the drag so that the rod will bend at least half way down it's length, and then while bent, loosen the drag until it just starts to straighten the pole. If that makes any sense :? It's a feel thing, just too loose and you won't get a good hook set, too tight and you may snap the line...
