When A Salmon Runs
24 May 2022
The important part when playing a salmon is to keep the rod as high as possible to act as a shock absorber against sudden movements from the fish and as importantly to stop the salmon from drowning the fly fine which can place too much pressure on the hook hold. In addition to this never ever try to stop a salmon from running when it wants to go as it will end in a broken leader and lost fish. You can clearly see from this video the immense power a running salmon possesses.
