length of fight (human vs salmon)

i have always heard stories of guys hooking atlantic salmon and saying that it took them 15 min, 30 min, and even heard of guys saying it took them an hr to land them. now for a green horn to fly fishing salmon like myself, most of these stories sound like a really good fish tale. So i ask you pros, what is considered a good long tug of war between a man and the atlanitic salmon. i just cant imagine fighting a fish for 15 min let alone an hr. so lets hear some facts, what should i expect.
be gentle on the hook set, i am a newbie to fly fishing
