Casting Flies for Salmon
Fly casting for salmon, with the two hand salmon rod is done in the same way as casting for trout and bass, except that both hands are used, and the hand that grasps the butt, usually the left, is used only as a pivot for the rod, and the movement of the rod is executed mainly with the right hand, which grasps the upper grip.
Fly fishing is the most refined, artistic, and sportsmanlike method of taking game fish — any kind of fish that will rise to a fly — and is withal the most enjoyable. While, for some kinds of fish, it may not be as productive of results as some other kind of fishing, it is so much nicer in every way, so much more enjoyable, that it should be better understood by anglers in general. Black bass fishers especially, if not already acquainted with fly fishing, should give it some study. There are some anglers who do not even know that the black bass will take an artificial fly. For trout and salmon there is nothing like it, and there are other fishes also that will rise to a fly.
