Default Re: Catch and Release?

I practice C&R 99.99% of the time. I only keep if there is a hooking mortality expected. Last time I kept was about 4 yrs ago when a brookie swallowed my last (and working very well) water boatman pattern. When I removed the fly, the fish was bleeding. Usually I would have just snipped the line and let brookie go with my fly.

Cheers,
Doc
