    Default PLANNING A TRIP - Our man in Canada - July 04, 2011

    PLANNING A TRIP

    The 2011 season is up and running full steam! Yes, on my home waters, the season starts late, salmon arrive early in June. Over the past few days salmon have moved up from the fjord and are starting to take up holding lies up and down the river.

    Ok, I really have to wonder... 200-300 yards of backing?? Would you really let a fish in a river get over 2-3 football fields down river from you and be able to keep him on the line without snagging on a rock or something?

    I can see a 100 yards, maybe, but 200 or 300 in a river seems like complete overkill.
    Life is expensive... but it does include a free trip around the sun.

    I don't know branhap, but I intend to attempt to answer that question in 2012.

    Chris, see you there is 2012.

    For others, I can verify that it really is that simple. When I fished there it was very straight forward.
