This might be useful for other rookies planning on bank fishing like me. Im going to be fishing for all 5 types of salmon from June until august, mostly from the bank. Now I've been reading up on how to do the 'kenai flip', how to get my lures to the right depth, how not to piss off a local when combat fishing and also how to tie up - egg loop knots.
I wanted to pre-tie several of these knots onto hooks because, knowing myself, I will probably lose a lot of tackle while Im learning...probably the whole trip.
I found out how to tie the knot here: http://www.fintalk.com/fishing-knots/fish-egg-loop.html
I just wanted to know what size hook I should use for Kings? Silvers?
And, on that knot, can I as well include some sort of yarn, or fly for color?
Thanks a million.
