But you know, catch and release is not the probleme in Europe for river... There is a lot of agression than pollution of water, dam on river... And contrary at north america, river in europe gone to death, nothing is interressed by fishing and fish... For all it's an stupid activises reserved for old people, it's old-fashioned...
How different. Here in the US, you are highly encouraged to catch and release.
I would also say that in the US, it is the pinnacle of cool to be a fly fisherman.
