"When in Rome" as they say, but to be towed around on a pram by a fish would be dangerous in most places I've fished for chinook. Not to mention... this would impede many other anglers from getting theirs for far too long. It would likely shut the bite down too. Sounds like bad form to me but... As they say.

Far better to get the fish in and out the way quickly and it can certainly can be done on a gear -n- pawl reel in majority of the "typical chinook" fisheries in the PNW.

Sir Blackledge,
I'm curious, how does it happen that everytime you try to shine your light into the darkness of this forum you start a shiite storm. I've fished the Klamath since I was a kid and the only times i've seen you fishing, you've had a baitcasting rod in your hands, never a fly rod.

How's "The worst trip ever lawsuit" coming along ??

And this go-around Carl please don't go crying to the mod's.

I thought he was talking about a totally different type of fishing or pulling our legs here.
Using a boat to land your salmon has nothing to do with traditional spey fishing. Carl may as well use his casting rod or anything else.

Carl, you have to put your fine line disclaimer information after your stated opinions so we, or our lawyers can figure out what you are talking about,

This should be very interesting , Please explain how you land a wild King Salmon on a fly rod with out tiring them out and get them in the net? I am waiting

You don't know me are what kind of equipment I own, so how can you say "I noodle arm the fish".

I will tell you I own the best fly rods and reels that money can buy, just so I can put the hurt on big Salmon, I don't believe in being nice to a hooked fish...my 2 cents

Yes, Carl forgets that this forum is primarily geared towards people swinging flies in river current with two hand rods standing on foot. Click reels work ok only when the river is significantly small. If a river is big and pushy and you have a big ocean fresh chinook on the other end...good luck with the hardy. Totally different ballgame from the bank.

Carl, I am curious how you fish and get to use your pram to tire the fish. Can you walk us through the steps of your typical hook up and landing of a salmon? You cast from shore ? With a 14' or 15' rod? And once you hook into a fish you then use your pram? I find it really interesting.

I was talking about fly fishing the Rogue river, not the Klamath....i fish each river different. The Rogue is a very special River---The Klamath is just a garbage dump and we only go there to harvest fish ....I fish each River with different tools and I am not ashamed to say that....if you seen me their with a bait rod, then you too must have been using one.

As far as any law suites, I decided to just let it go....It's wasn't the money it was the principal. I didn't like getting screwed, would you like to get screwed out of your money?

too bad people on here are afraid of using there real names.
