A Quick Look into Salmon Fishing

Dec 12th 2015 at 6:39 AM

When you make your decision to go on your first fishing holiday, you might feel that it is as easy as it seems to be. You might have seen fishers catching salmons with such an ease that you expect a very easy task in front of you. But, one must know that there are certain basic things to keep in mind before you begin your first fly fishing day. Catching a fish especially a salmon is rather tricky. Here are some simple tips to begin with.

Fishing early in the morning is the most recommended as you have a fresh beginning in the most beautiful morning climate. Fishes pool in during the early morning hours looking for food and that's the perfect time when you can lure them with your yummy bait. The next thing is to dress up. If you are going Iceland salmon fishing on a boat, then you will need the deep riggers which can help you place the bait at the perfect depth. While fishing from the shore, you have to have fly fishing clothing with waders. The salmons go deep down below the rocks to find their favorite small fishes. You can ideally waddle deep into the waters and place your fly right in a dark location on the opposite bank near a log or a rock bottom.

Once you have set your fly, it’s time for you to sit up and wait for your salmon to come in. Make sure you keep your line in the water so that you can get the salmon from the deep waters. It’s also luck based if you want to get the salmon to strike in the river. You can try drift fishing in the rivers to get the salmon to strike. While fly fishing for salmon you can see that, sometimes the salmon will get at any fly or sometimes they ignore every fly. So there is nothing like a perfect salmon fly

Once the salmon strike, it is essential to hook it in properly. You can simply jerk it into position with your hand to set it in. Once the hook sets hard into the roof of the mouth, it pains the fish and it takes off into a fight. The next challenge in salmon fishing is to land the salmon. They are real fighters, so you will have to use the tiring trick to tire the salmon after its runs around to let loose. Once it tires, you can either pull back or even use net to capture it from head side.
