Anything less than 10# for Salmon is a bad idea in my opinion. If you land a dark fish that you decide to release or you snag a fish that you have to release, fighting them on light line for an extended period of time significantly reduces their chance for survival. This is even more true on years like this where the water is low and warm with little oxygen.

Loomis blanks, made at the Woodland, WA Loomis facility. Graphite is rolled there and rods are assembled there.
Instead of the "twist" after the first 8 wraps you need to go back through the hook eye. The second set of wraps goes over both lines. Hard to explain - watch JD's video.
