Salmon and steelhead angling is about as technically-diverse as you can get. Pick any mile-long stretch of river and there's just cause for having a dozen different rods on- board to fish it effectively. Hence, the reason Lamiglas crafts more technique-specific rods than any other manufacturer. Jig, drift, back-bounce, troll, hover, back-troll, throw spinners, boondog, side-drift, pull plugs, side plane, mooch, etcetera, etcetera, and etcetera. Yeah, we've got specialized rods to do that.
