    Ok, I will have some time to myself this weekend and would like to try my hand at salmon fly-fishing. I have done trout fishing on a dry fly but what different equipment should I use for salmon? I have read some people talk about sinking tippets or leaders? Is there a good on-line tutorial about salmon fishing?

    I have a buddy of mine that lives down by the Carbon and he tells me he is catching Silvers out of there so I thought I would start there. I live in Kent and if anyone can suggest another area close to Kent that would be great too.

    Thanks for the great board. I have learned lots here.:)
