Fishing for the browns while the salmon are moving? Having weighted hooks to free snags?
You're talking to a salmon veteran here
I would have hauled you in.
I've been stopped a gabillion times on the river, and never once has an officer looked in my tackle box.. In fact, I believe that would be considered an illegal search. You sure theres nothing more to this story?
