    Knife blade angles

    That's kind of the way I was leaning that the little bit wider angle may hold a little longer. But as you said I was worried about the fine cutting like skinning or removing rib bones.

    Knife blade angles

    Last year towards the end of the season I bought a work sharp knife sharpener. It is awesome. Question is what is the difference in knife angles? It came with a 40 and 50 included angle . They recommended a 40 in the instructions for fillet knives. and a 50 for hunting /outdoor knives. With the way we fillet salmon taking off the fillet and cutting through the bones would the 50 be better than the 40? I have a couple old knives and sharpened them with the 40 and 50 and they both seem equally as sharp.

    Copper question

    Your churches board will pull those no issues. Get some of the steel pins for them if you don't have them.

    Newb Questions (Bear with me)

    don't just get meat rigs flies produce tons of fish. Spin doctor and fly combos are awesome. I run a meat rig or two but mostly flasher fly combos.

    Little cleo- to add split ring or not?

    yeah I like the smallest I can get with a good test pound rating like the vmc sampo or spro.

    Little cleo- to add split ring or not?

    I have always used just a snap. I learned a long time ago when spoons are designed they are either designed to have the snap or not. If they don't come with one don't add one if they do don't remove it, as it can change the action of the spoon.

    Wire dipsys

    A full spool means more line picked up pre crank. I back mine with 50lb pp as 1000 ft of wire will not completely fill a reel. I want the max pickup when I am cranking them in.

    Grey fatty layer between meat and skin(salmon)

    I skin all my salmon trout and steelhead. trim the lateral line out and it tastes great everytime. It grills just fine with no skin you just cant flip it a half dozen times. Cook till done on one side flip cook till done remove.

    Braid

    50lb power pro. Yellow or green. yellow is easier to see out to your planer boards. Red bleeds red dye everywhere on the boat the first season then it seems ok, and the color fades really quick.

    tying 2 colors of lead to copper

    I've heard of it and am not sure about it. Not only that I have a heck of a lot of copper that would need replacing and that steel isn't cheap to just replace it all .

    Got a new new knife sharpener

    Bob when I went there he was explaining that the only time you use the green belt p80 is when there is really no edge. My 12 inch Victorinox couldn't cut butter. He ran it through three times on each side and then lightly on the first side to remove the burr. then went to the red p220 belt five times on each side then removed the burr. Finally he went to the purple 6000 and did ten times on each side and once on the first to remove the burr. When we was done you could literally shave with that knife. He used the 20 degree (40 included) kitchen knife guide as most fillet knives are sharpened at a 18 degree angle. the only way to get the 18 degree is with the ken onion version. I used the red belt on all my other knives when I got home with mine and between three to five pass they were razor sharp. I didn't use the purple belt on them. I think when I have to touch them up I am going to use the purple belts till they need an aggressive sharpening again. I bought this one https://www.sharpeningsupplies.com/Work-Sharp-Knife-Sharpener-P381C68.aspx the kitchen guide 40 included is the black large guide that slide over the top. http://www.worksharptools.com/40-kitchen-knife-guide.html. There are a couple videos on youtube that went into really good detail on using it and there are videos on the website that teach you to use it.
