Pink salmon Puyallup river 2013

I have a friend who is wanting to give salmon fishing a shot during this upcoming pink run.
The usual questions arise, starting with "what do I need?"

So here's a list of everything needed that I know of for fishing the Pink Salmon in the Puyallup. Someone should be able to purchase these products, and be set for a productive season from the middle of August till as long as the pinks are running thru.

Please let me know if you see something missing on this list. I want to make it easy for the beginners. It looks like someone should be totally outfitted form "nothing" to "loaded" for around $175 on the cheap side, to $275 for everything "deluxe".

Hope this helps!
