    Almost Time For Salmon

    So I haven't fished for salmon for a few years. I started getting my gear together, so I thought to check the regulations

    It seems my tried and true 1/2" treble and spawn sack isn't allowed on the rivers I fish.

    Only unweighted hooks 1/2" or less, or a 3/8" or less treble on a artificial lure.

    Phaggot Fly Fisherman got the rules changed without any input from us Bank Billies

    The fly guys got lots of trout waters designated as artificial lures only out here. Special protections for "Special" people. Guys like me who like to drown worms get looked at like second class citizens.
