    I use multiplier reels only. I fish only for big fish and don't want to play with a 15th Century line holder. A good choice is a Martin Mod 72 which has a 3:1 ratio and allows proper playing of fish...

    If the salmon are dark, there is NO reason to fish for them (in any manner), because the only Godly reason to fish is to catch and eat them. Snagging and/or releasing is the devils work.

    If you add a worm to the fly, it adds LOTS of wiggle. This one was taught to me by Joe of Joe's Worms & Juicy Grubbs & Special Protein Drink (available in smooth & extra chunky) and Furled Trot Lines.
