Hooking A Salmon
19 Aug 2019
One of the most important aspects of salmon fly fishing is knowing exactly how to deal with a 'take' when it occurs as it is crucial you don't react too quickly which will squander the opportunity. Train yourself to ignore the desire to lift the rod or strike as neither are effective. Wait until you're receiving a steady long draw of line off the reel and simply clamp the reel face with the rod pointing down to briefly feel the weight of the fish to ensure a proper hook hold.
