    Is the water level coming down? What section of the willow? Above or below the bridge? Did you float? That's. a nice fish!

    Nice fish. It's best to not give them a bath in gravel.

    I had the camera pre focused and ready to go- he swam away to fight another day. Floated from the parks to the mouth, water was high about 7.5 but mostly clear, I may hit the middle next week if anybody wants to go, water levels should drop

    I was surprised to learn how many fish "swim away to fight another day" and then die 1/2 hour later (shock, internal injuries). Tom Rosenbauer's said a lot about liking to see fish photos in which the fish are dripping wet. Anyway, I don't like to see fish on gravel, either.

    It's tough to photograph fish when you're alone (and I nearly always fish alone, which usually means no fish photos), but it's all about the tradeoffs.

    Here on the Chena we're just about done unless we get a warm-up, I think. Nice to be fishing.

    I wouldnt worry about it to much. Everybody has different ideas on correct C&R techniques ie Net or No Net just as one example. Truth of the matter is fishing is a deadly game. Theres always a chance of mortality no matter what you do. Great fish, great pic, keep on Slayin!

    I wouldn't worry about it either, but by reading the C&R sticky at the top of the fly fishing page and following some of the ideas listed there, one can reduce risks of C&R injury and mortality.

    Sure, but you can improve the odds.

ID:	73944I fish alone a lot and there are lots of ways to get good pics with little handling and imposing little stress on the fish. These are taken with an iphone Keep'em wet, and let'em go quick.

    Anyone fished around willow lately? Thinking about making a trip up to those creeks.

    Yes -- let's keep them off the gravel so they can have a long life and get a little bigger.Attachment 74196
