Default The Right Grip

I try not to pull the fish out but this is a good explanation of what to do and not to do.

Trout dying to get a good photo?

Good article & lesson. Should also be noted that any species intended to be released should be handled with the same care, even though some are more hardy than others.

I remember as a kid catching Bluegills & Pumpkinseeds in the creek near where I grew up. I know I caught some of those fish several times, over & over, and even not really knowing much about proper release techniques they still survived.

Respect the resource, no matter what that may be!

Very interesting article, and well written. I know a lot of fishermen who will benefit from reading it. It certanly would be worth making a sticky of and posting up top, as a benefit to the forum in general.

In one of the many fishing magazines I read I noticed in one a photo of a person holding a beautiful large fish, BUT it looked like he had a death grip on it. Was disgusting. I felt that way before I read this. I may have to send that to the magazine editors.
