 Although equipped with a strong 15 ft rod, I have some struggle to stop the salmon in the strong current and prevent it from running straight downstream into the nearby whitewater at the end of the beat. My hand landing skills prove less developed then the local hero’s, and I do not manage to tail the fish at the spot where I hooked it, also due to the strong current. Finally deciding to use the ‘walk the dog’ technique, I direct the salmon into shallow water nearby the island.
