I seldom keep any fish I catch, but that is MY choice, not the fault of a poorly set hook or a loose line at the net.
I agree, its in hand if you need the fish as food. If you have caught many and see yourself as a bothersome irritation to the trout, then in the spirit of being merciful, the lines between caught and hoping to lose the odd fish become blurred.
