A. What’s legal or not depends upon local laws.
For example, on the Salmon River in New York,
even though we’ve used legal flatfish clones,
the treble hooks must be replaced with a single
hook. There may be hook size and time-of-year
limitations as well. This is a purely local
issue and if you’re new to an area, you really
need to talk to locals.

can be a lot of reasons. Steelhead are a
strong fish (an understatement!) Is the hook
pulling out or is it breaking off? If you're
using a spinning rod, make sure that the
drag is not set too tight! Let the fish run!
Take your time and don't put too much pressure
on the fish. Let the rod do the work. If the
hook breaks off, you may be scuffing the leader
on a rocky bottom or the line may have weakened
over time. Try a little stronger leader. You
may have to go to 10lb test depending on
bottom or current conditions. And don't forget,
if you're landing anywhere near 1/2 of your
hookups, don't worry. You're doing very well!
