I would like to get into steel/salmon fishing and I am curious about rod/reel set ups. Do you prefer baitcasting or spinning reels? How about the flex on your rod? I usually try to go with the lightest gear/tackle possible. Is that wise for steel/salmon or should I use some heavier gear. I would think that with the size of the fish and the current in the rivers heavier would be the best bet. I have talked to a few employees at some outdoor stores but none seemed to strike me as knowing what they were talking about.
