On my previous post on mending the fly line to control speed I thought it necessary to include a post on the presentation of the fly when Salmon fishing. Salmon do not feed when in the river to spawn so a fly presented to them is more to annoy them into a reaction than them eating your lure whereas trout are there to feed and are usually hungry.
Having been a salmon angler for many years one of the main things I have picked up is you are always learning. On my travels it amazes me on how different fly anglers fish their flies. When I find anglers who are more experienced on their local rivers I will do my best to watch and learn as best I can on how they are fishing the pools. One thing that stands out is the best anglers out there know exactly how their salmon flies are fishing at any particular time.
There are a few factors to consider to know how a fly is fishing including the fly type, the leader material, the fly line style and density, cast distance, length of rod and how the line is mended and retrieved. These elements you can control another one you can not is the natural condition of the pool however with line presentation you can make some changes to the natural condition of the pool and fish it better.

Guru, a US machine producing company that began in 1996 has consistently been in the limelight due to its top-notch products – reels, rods and accessories. Exquisite and classy, the reels produced are relatively cheaper hence tops the affordability list.
Reels are highly unswerving and brag of broadness in terms of diameter rendering the spool slimmer. These aspects in turn make the reel’s entire weight lesser.
Geometrically, the spool is up to date to unveil the porting that leads to a drastic reduction in weight and skyrockets retrieve proportions. Line drying is boosted and fully fits in the equalizer. Advancement in technology has seen Guru emphasis on the reel’s structural steadiness by introducing a cross-section that is artistically curved.
Waterworks-Lamson Guru Series II Fly Reel tops the market when it comes to the fishing world and its technical aspect. The reception by the current market is positive and thousands of reels have been purchased until now.
