  1. for the fall salmon runs up in Michigan, anyone else ever head up and fish these? I been going off and on for about 10 years now, best fun a 7 wt could ever provide!! I enjoy the late season fish that have to be nymphed with 6 lb tippet, I love challenges! The funny part is when we go, we go durring when the Dayton club, ( MVFF) goes up and every year these guys are breaking there 9 or 10 wt rods, it just amazes me that every year the same 2-3 guys break there rods...( Hint) maybe they should learn how to fight big fish.... :) Instead they bring a bigger heavier rod each year. Some are using 11 wts now.

    6 weeks and counting down....

    Well that funny.. I like watching guys like that wrestle a fish..lol.. I'm going to miss my Salmon Trip this year with the boys, but I'll be in NY plenty this fall before she ices over, and after she ices out "I'll have a seat open"... I got a 25# steelhead up there with my name on it! I really enjoy the guys that say you need salmon hooks to land these fish! O shure you need a strong hook 2-3X heavy, and sharp other than that keep it reel! Well good luck you fishing above "Geographically" the big man? I have enjopyed trout fishing up there during that time .. lol...
     

  3. So you guys don't think I'll be under gunned with a 7 wt ? I was thinking of getting a 8-9 wt. By the way, what is your reel of choice for salmon/steelhead?
    Thanks

  4. can land salmon on a seven wt no very pretty but you can do it! Reel any one of them with a good drag, unless you like palming your reels!
