    Default HOOKED FISH MORTALITY - Bob Boese - Aug 13, 2012

    HOOKED FISH MORTALITY


    Many items are more controversial than fly fishing justifies. It's a hobby and it should be fun, not provoke arguments. That's a nice sentiment, but not always true. Consider the question of whether the equipment or the lure designates fly fishing. What side you take determines your position on Czech nymphing and Tenkara. Is attractant a boon or a sin? How evil is a three fly rig? Should there be private waters? If you chased down all the issues, it would eventually bring you to Catch and Release.

    (http://myfwc.com/research/saltwater/...209;mortality/) is incorrect url! All the other url addresses in the article are good. Other than that, a great article of fish morality.... ~Parnelli

    Interesting article, I was not surprised with the high survival rate of the shallow salt water species or the deep water except for the extreme pressure change. I have been lead to believe trout are one of the more fragile species of game fish and try to handle them accordingly, for small trout I try not to touch them but grasp the fly and remove it with a quick twist releasing the fish.

    Since my family ran off to the Teche Country and left me behind I always appreciate the humor from down there.
