Last but not least, our last contributor Anders Neteland from Norway answers our quick pick questions. The e-book will be out in a week, looking forward to get it out there.
Quality or quantity?
Both. If I have to choose I will say quality.
Floating or sinking?
Sinking. Floating more fun but sinking more effective.
Singlehand or doublehand?
Doublehand. Single-handers are more fun but double-handers are more effective.
Tube or hook?
Turn and wait or strip strike and hit hard?
Turn and wait. When fishing with a sinking line you feel something, it means that the fish is already hooked. You can choose how to set the hook. I always give line. I can wait for half an hour for the fish to pull some line. I occasionally strip set if I feel it’s needed.
"I knew that I didn’t have enough experience, nor I think I’ll ever have, to write about salmon fishing based solely on my personal opinions. So it made the perfect sense to have contributors that I had met while fishing for salmon to showcase their flies and methods. I started working with the ”hypothesis” that there’s just a handful of flies that any angler needs. "
The results for Best Salmon Flies for 2019 are now calculated and analysed. We will announce the top three patterns with comments and display some of the custom patterns that we're entered in the vote.
So how did it go in Secret river 2.0? Don't really know how to respond to that. Or if I even want to answer it. How the hell do you write about something that you want to keep secret? A fishing spot you want just for yourself, now that my usual favorite waters is floating past me and out of my life.
