[Bioperl-l] Question about accessing tags in Bio::SeqFeature::Generic

I have a question about a the Bio::SeqFeature::Generic that doesn't seem 
clear to me from the docs.  Here's an example of the seq feature I'm 

my $RepeatElement = new Bio::SeqFeature::Generic(     -start => 
                                            -end => $L1HERVLine[7],
                                            -strand => $L1HERVLine[9],
                                            -source => 'Repeat',
                                            -tag =>{
                                            -repName => $L1HERVLine[10],
                                            -repClass => $L1HERVLine[11],
                                            -repFamily => $L1HERVLine[12]}

Now, the feature itself creates fine.  However, it isn't clear how I 
would retrieve information from the tag has.  The get_tag_value() 
function isn't working for me, and I can't access the hash directly.  
What should I do to be able to access the data?  Let me know, and thanks 
in advance.
