Note of the Day:

Beaching a large Pacific salmon can be harmful to the fish if you plan to release it, and trying to lift a big salmon’s head at close quarters may break a fragile graphite rod tip. Guides on salmon rivers from Alaska to Norway prefer wide, long-handled nets that make the last part of the battle safe and easy for all parties involved. —Tom Rosenbauer
