Inside each issue, you'll also find three of the most respected authors in the salmon and steelhead industry: Eric Martin, Terry Rudnick, Bob Ball and Don Thomas.
A proverbial “gear head” and “fish bum”, Martin is the magazine’s Gear Editor. One of the most knowledgeable and well-respected young writers in the Pacific Northwest, Martin holds a fisheries degree from Oregon State University and is able to bring his knowledge and passion to the pages of the magazine each issue with the gear reviews. He analyzes and breaks down each subject matter, at the same time educates the reader at a level not seen in any other publication.
With over 25 years writing experience and a lifetime of fishing experience Rudnick writes the Saltwater Column. Every issue you'll find an informative “how-to” story that is applicable to the many ocean and Puget Sound fisheries that await you.
Spending over 250 days on the water provides plenty of opportunity to experiment and master proven techniques and that's where Ball shines. Every issue Ball brings his knowledge and expertise to the pages of Salmon & Steelhead Journal. Ball guides on Washington's Olympic Peninsula as well as several months in Alaska.
