This easy-to-follow, comprehensive guide is the only book
that anglers will need to catch maximum salmon.
Maximum Salmon is the only book you need to catch West Coast salmon in salt and fresh water. Focusing exclusively on salmon fishing techniques, D.C. Reid outlines strategies for angling, from Alaska to California. Reid presents the gear, tackle, techniques and essential knowledge of salmon behaviour that transform average salmon fishing into maximum salmon fishing.

Anglers will learn the nitty-gritty of rigging information crucial to success. They'll find out about specific fly patterns, hootchies, plugs, Apexes, spoons, bait heads and drift-fishing lures. They'll be introduced to techniques they may not yet have tried but should: power mooching; streamer stripping; sunk, skated, swung and dead-drifted freshwater fly tactics; and the baitcaster and open-face spinning techniques for bait and artificials.

This guide covers all six disciplines--gear, fly and spey in both salt and fresh water--and includes all major types of fisheries for all five species of salmon: sockeye, pink, chinook, coho and chum. Techniques are presented in clear language along with accompanying diagrams and photographs.
