I grew up fishing with my uncle in Alaska for chinook and coho and baisicly applied the same stratagies to the northeast and came out fairly successful but not exactly where I want to be. I know that every area has its must fish this way with this and that kinda mentality going on and was wondering if you fellas might be able to throw me a few tips to get me up to par. Ive heard a lot about estaz eggs and egg sucking leeches which go hand in hand down there for salmon and steelies. Also, any advice on line and leader and tippets?
Steelheading is not my forte'. But welcome and thank you for your service and standing on the wall for us!!
