However, I would encourage you to check out the site. For generic Ericson issues, it's a great resource. I just wish there were more 34-T materials.

Also, a magazine has been doing a make-over...

Get Licenses!

It depends on when you're there, but when the salmon are running, you can't miss them. Some days you'll get nothing, some days you'll limit out.

Halibut are easier, but you need to know what...

If the base of the mast had slipped forward by four inches, that's likely to have induced a shitload of unwanted rake. That can induce excessive weather helm. By restepping it properly, it sounds...
