Tommi got into salmon fishing from running a record company. You can read more about his salmon fishing from the book, but here’s the quick picks from Tommi.

Quality or quantity?

Quality. It’s your own personal time. Quality also with the fish.
Floating or sinking?

Sinking. Really, really seldom floating.

Single or double hand?

Double. Sage Method 14’9”. I fished with a single hander once in Canada.

Hook or Tube?

Depends of the circumstances. I think I prefer a tube fly.

Hit hard or wait and let it turn?

I wait the fish to turn and use a loop, which I release even after the slightest take.

A fishing spot you want just for yourself, now that my usual favorite waters is floating past me and out of my life.

It's not often that salmon anglers are faced with high, warm water conditions in the latter part of the season.

 

I have experienced this twice now in Norway, and this situation is most common on rivers with a lake above their system that has a big enough catchment to collect localized rainfall, and or rivers that are fed via glacial melt water.
