Post Re: Things about Flyfishing I'll Never Understand

It may be me, but it seems that trout are viewed by some to be "hallowed." I've caught rainbow trout and I hold them in the same respect as the bass, pike, bluegill, or any other fish I catch. A shiner has a soft body, similar to a trout.

I wet my hands prior to handling any fish...it protects the slime, and I'm not too cool about smelling like a big fish!

Are trout fragile? They escape the clutches of a hungry otter. Eagles and osprey grab them and the trout slip away. Muskies and pike grab them and trout get away.

Nature is rough. Trout have to be tough to survive.

Cheers,

Robert
