Re: Helping Hand Tailing Glove
George, I prefer not to handle our finny brothers/sisters at all.
I think a net would be far better than a beach to land fish. (No beached fish pictures either please.)
The rubber/silicone nets are the only nets that are really "fish freindly". Clear is best, they don't spook at the net. I threw away my nylon net a few years ago.
As a guide I use an oversize net "play pen" for them, and leave them in the water. Then, take the net down and away.
Plus, you don't have to tire them as much as when we bring them to hand.
Give them the love!!!!
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
