A very refreshing and spot-on article!
I practice C&R on waters that require it, and whenever I don't have either a taste for fish or the means to keep them properly. C&R holds no mantra of ethics whatsoever in my personal guidebook. It is a conservation tool. No more, no less. Fishing is simply a bloodsport that, unlike others, affords the hunter the opportunity to change their mind, look at their prey and say...."tag-you're-it". But it remains a bloodsport none-the-less.
