1. The Rod
The rod is one of the most important pieces of equipment needed to purchase for salmon fishing; a graphite rod is good since it is strong and lightweight. You will want to get a medium action rod as it is a good middle ground for beginners. I would recommend using a heavier weight rod as salmon are heavier. Choose the one that works for you to enjoy more as you do the salmon fishing. Ucluelet Fishing Charters has a great variety of different fly fishing rods.
2. Time of Day
Salmon are best spotted on cloudy days and towards dusk. They do not like the light; therefore a nice day is not an ideal time for fishing salmon unless you go very early in the morning or dusk. Vancouver Island Fishing gives you a yearlong round experience of salmon fishing.
Salmon have decorously hard skin so sharp hooks are a must. When purchasing salmon hooks ask the salesperson for his or her opinion on what hooks are best for salmon in the area. They know what to offer because they know more about the fishing area
4. Where can you catch salmon?
Salmon can be in both rivers and lakes. It would be better if you will check your local and state fishing policies and licensing policies. Every state has its policies and regulations and is impossible to mention in this article. Checking out policies in the area you are planning to go fishing will be a great help. Salmon are predatory in lakes when feeding, however they will rarely bite in rivers. The best policy would be to check lakes on cloudy days or towards dusk.
Besides the rod and hook you will also need some other equipment. Waders are a necessary equipment, as well as line which you will need about 90 feet of minimum. Ucluelet Fishing Charters have a great selection of poles, waders, lines, sunglasses, gloves, fishing boxes, and lures. Using sunglasses is also recommended when fly fishing so there is no glare on the water and you can see clearly.
