There are eight simple considerations to successful salmon fishing. First you should be aware of the basic equipment required to be effective. Next, you must know a little about salmon and their habits. Third, you need to be aware of the most common lures and baits. The next consideration allows you to be independent -- a basic knowledge of setting up the key hooks and rigging. Fifth is knowing how to measure length of line and depth of water. Knowing the most successful local fishing techniques is sixth, and knowing how to read the water is number seven. Finally, you need to know were to take your boat. This is what this book is all about.
