Glyn’s autumn salmon wisdom

Here’s a very nice snippet from a good blog post you can find via the link on my home page marked FishPal blog. It’s a nice reminder from AAPGAI Master Glyn Freeman on why you should vary your casts while fishing an autumn pool for both fresh (running) and more potted salmon. I would do well to remember it  and so might you:
“Every fifth cast and pace or so down the pool, throw a really square cast that will come around quite fast with the aid of the current on the line and use a fast figure of eight or a strip retrieve. What we are trying to do is not only cover fish that are on the normal lies, but to have a chance at goading a running fish which tend to travel a little higher in the water. Often you can see these fish moving up the river showing frequently, there is nothing guaranteed but just every now and then it happens.”
