Re: Eat that fish, or release it?
Back in the early 70's, when I first moved to Colorado I was dirt poor and lived in a VW van in the National Forest. Temporary labor jobs and playing guitar in bars was my only income. There were plenty of fish in the creeks near my campsite and I ate a lot of trout. I mean a lot of trout.
Since then the thought of eating them doesn't appeal to me much. But I love to fish. At the time I mostly spin fished, till I got a little South Bend backpack flyrod kit for about $20. I still have the Martin tin reel that came with that kit.
Now it's stricktly catch and release. Take the picture, leave the fish.
