Playing A Powerful Tay Salmon

The important thing to remember when playing a fish is to not try to rush the fight as when you try to overpower a salmon it will fight back twice as hard increasing the chances of your fish throwing the hook. The fight should be fun so take your time and enjoy the sound of the reel and feeling the salmon's power. You'll know when your salmon is ready to be landed as it will start showing its flanks at close range and that is the correct time to reach for the landing net.
