Hi Tom,

Love your show. I’ve got over 90 of your podcasts on my computer, and I cycle through them as I work, particularly if I know I’m going to be hitting the water soon. You did a steelhead show recently; how about salmon fishing? Alaskan vs. landlocked. Single-hand rod vs two-hand/Spey. Small stream vs. large river?

Last November, I spent a day with guide Tony Gugino on the Salmon River near Pulaski, New York. I’ve attached pics of all the fish I caught that day. I hooked half as many more that got away. Definitely the best day of fishing I ever had. All of these were in the catch-and-release section near the source of the river, just below the dam.

That’s a pretty good haul for a single day of fishing. Don’t you agree?
