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.
In the second episode of Master Class Tying Jussi Jurvelin ties a high water special, tube fly called Flood Bum. Watch the full episode for detailed tying instructions.
Clear waters, northern wind, mosquitos, campside coffee and great moments with great friends. Here's a short recap of 2019 salmon season from our friends at Kalaukkofly. Enjoy.
