After many years trying and getting closer, lost 2 last year and 1 a week or so ago, I finally got myself a Salmon! Taken on (or just before) low tide at the Banana Hole this evening. I gave my trusty old SpinFocus GK4500 reel a good service, put Yo-Zuri Hybrid Super Soft line on it for the first time (I’ve loved this line on my Trout gear for a few of years) and its obviously done the trick. It screamed, ran and pulled superbly to bring the fish in – and netted with deft skill by Gunner Coops. Weighed in at 19lb.
