Re: Nice fighting rainbow video i found
Good video, but isn't that fish a steelhead, or does it not have access to the ocean? In any case, good stuff man. I think if you're fishing waters that produce large fish in good numbers, it's easier to just get some in-water shots, but for others who fish a long time before landing a fish, an out-of-water picture is totally fine as long as the fish isn't out for too long.
I've watched biologists tag and measure the landlocks here in VT, they dip them in the water every 5-10 seconds....I try to do the same with all my fish if I'm getting a picture of me holding it.
