Hallo Mikael,
I would like to see more of your (Great) little tricks.
1998 I caught my first salmon with this technique. I was fishing the Little Cascapedia in Canada. Rene my guide taught me to lead my fly the same way you mention in you video. As I have learned in many different books about salmon fishing, I was mending the line after every cast. Rene told me that this is not advisable. After coming back home I told my experiences to fisherman. Many answered that this technique is rubbish.
Kind regards, Joachim
