SALMON TAILER,  MADE BY W.L. SULLIVAN                                 $80
This is a device for landing Atlantic Salmon (and other fish) by catching their caudal “wrist” in a loop of stainless steel cable.  Ingenious design immobilizes the fish without damage caused by gaff hooks or landing nets.  Perfect for catch-and-release fishing.  In use, the angler cocks the cable loop, then slips it over the fish’s tail so it can snap tight. This tailer was made about 20 years ago and used very lightly in Quebec.  CONDITION is excellent with cable and fittings in top shape. email ward at
