Thanks, yes I can believe those reasons.

It just appears the salmon fishery is so large in PNW there would be more fly fishing for them.

Throwing a sink tip 11 and 12 weight fly rod is not fun.

I built a 10 weight king salmon fly rod 18 years ago, which I thought would handle them, forgot about it. It is not strong enough for them. We do not have as large of salmon here either, 20-30 lb max, not 30-50 lbs like out there at times.

I was so sore at the end of those king salmon days. Could probably not do it now.
