Atlantic Salmon program

12 September 2019 - 04:43 PM

Again it comes down to money.
The well off, are so desperate to find a renewable Atlantic fishery here in Ontario.
Not for you or me.
Just so they can buy up miles of river access and charge through the nose to fish these rivers
100's of dollars per hour plus the added cost of guide non optional requirements.
Rich get richer.
And just another business.
Just look at the wasted years and millions of fish and dollars spent already to reach this goal.
Last gasp effort is the Ganny.
No more steelhead fishing.
I hope to God this is another Atlantic failure.
Don't want to lose the best steelhead fishing in Ontario.

I feel the need

I feel the need, to have the pin spinning on overdrive . Grab a couple fresh nooks.
Sit in the Bush, till those hos and bows make an appearance.

Main line pinning

And I'll start it off.
Had no opinion cause I've never used a center pin reel.
At 60 yrs old finally gave in to the peer pressure on the river.
Grabbed myself an islander and Loomis glx rod.
Spooled her up with fly line backing and
340 yrds of 6 lb test mono.
Finally got some experience with my new setup on this years trout opener.
Went 5 for 8.
Was asked by veterans how many broke off with the 6 lb test.
Short answer none.
2 lost on croc roll and 1 broken hook at hook gap.
Croc roll issue cause I allowed slack in line, being a rookie and constantly looking at what center pin reel was doing. Lol
Was a blast on the 1 to 1 battle but found it quite exhausting.

Have to admit I missed my Stradic and relaxing auto drag .
Learning curve I'm assuming.

Back to steelhead and salmon fishing

Can't stand this dying forum anymore.
Back to the start please.
Or the inevitable.
Just shut her down !
