Thank you sir. Here are a couple more that are probably 2 of the best shots I've ever taken. Not much skill going on here - just hold the camera under water and hope you get lucky.

Are you really gilling the fish? Are you tying to show how not to hold the fish?

crazyfish,

Don't get the idea that I'm piling on with criticism but perhaps a little encouragement on better ways to handle fish is in line here. While showing a picture of a fish caught is something almost all people do now that we have digital cameras in the pockets, don't feel that you have to have a picture of every fish lest no one believe you caught them. I'll take your word without a doubt and no one will give you a hard time for the way you photo them. keeping them out of the water when you plan to release is always a bad idea. You can manage to get some pictures with the fish in the water even when you're alone. below are a couple fish pictures nobody will cringe over when they see them. I have no doubt that the fish were unharmed by our encounter.

Not a brook trout but a relative, the fish never left the water.

This is a Grayling waiting for me to remove the fly.

Sometimes with larger fish I have to pull them partially onto the shore so that I can hold them while removing the hook. By planning ahead and having the camera at the ready I can snap a quick one then slide them back so that they can continue to breath while I put down the camera and then remove my fly.

Whatever you do, don't handle them a bunch, and don't stick fingers into the gills if you are C&R fishing OK

Those fish are obviously stockers and I'm guessing you took them home to eat? I'm hoping that if you ever make it up into the mountains for some real VA brookies, they don't get the same treatment.

Caught about 30 of these in a small creek in Labrador. This was the only one that wanted to co-operate for a picture.
