Also included are tips on how to properly rig plugs with different styles of hooks, how to properly tune your lures and the best way to fillet sardines and make bait wraps.
A great book for the River Salmon Fisherman
This is a great book. I bought it (for the price of a Kwikfish) with the hope of finding at least one nugget of useful information. I was pleasantly surprised to find a whole treasure chest of nuggets. The book is short but to the point. Everyone from a first time Kwikfish fisherman to a veteran will get something from this book.
For those of you who do not know JD, he is one of the top West Coast guides and writers for Salmon, Steelhead, Stripers, and even surf fishing.
