Default Love catch and release

Caught these three brookies out of this little catch and release brook in Northern NY. I had a fourth on, but he wriggled off. Lost my fly box, it fell out of my pocket, so I had to use some flies that I designed but hadn't put them in the box. Guess I'll have to make a couple more now.

I usually lose a lot of flies anyway(I'm not careful enough with my back casts), and I only had two flies left so I tried dapping the flies I had left, it was my first real attempt at dapping and I have to say I liked it a lot, so in a way I'm glad that I lost the flies because if I had more I wouldn't have been worried about losing them, and I wouldn't have tried this new technique, if that makes any sense.

Nice colors on those brookies. That creek looks alot like the ones I fish close to home. Come to think of it, northern NY is not that far from my place!

I practice C & R most of the time but it does bother me some and makes me feel like my cat bringing home birds he catches and plays with. Maybe I think too much but if trout tasted better I would'nt fee so bad. Maybe this is why I've drifted over to saltwater where the fish are more delectable to my palate.

I do practice Catch and release, but I was actually refering to the fact that the creek is Catch and release only. It get's quite a bit of fishing pressure, but there is still a really good brookie population, and thus I 'love catch and release'. I can understand where you're coming from though.
