|Last evening into the night was simply perfect.Â
Too windy, too cold, too wet and rainy and not enough worms to spitÂ on but…
We were there waiting for the scouts and we touched three of them andÂ landed one. NIce fish 36″ Denise took his picture. He is lucky to beÂ alive as I am going to a celebration today and it is pot luck and I forgotÂ until just after I let him go.
I never go fishing with the idea that catch and release is the moralÂ
right way to go fishing as I do not think it is morally correct at all.
Torturing fish or any animal for pleasure and nothing else is notÂ
Catch and release is a good management tool for maintaining fisheriesÂ
and that is a good thing.Â I always keep in mind that I will catch and keep a fish every time I goÂ
fishing unless I decide to let it go. Let the little ones go and only keep a big one if I have a purpose for itÂ namely food.Â That to me is morally correct.Â
I do not call it catch and release I call it being a fisherman.I hate the body count energy that catch and release fishermen haveÂ fallen into to brag about their prowess.Â They are catch and release gangsters.Â The, “True Believers,” of fly fishing.
