    Real fishermen's don't take them out of the water to release them. Your signature says a lot about you. The more I see your post the more I realize this.

    No, but mhhunter76 isn't the only one who tries to avoid taking them out of the water - I do, too. That said, the only time I'll give someone grief about taking them out is if they keep them out a long time or if the fish is getting beat up. The goal here is to preserve our fisheries. I'd much rather see someone holding a fish lightly and briefly than seeing a picture of a fish that's about to be released laid out on the rocks for a photo.

    There is some really terrible fish handling out there, and while there are things in this video I would personally not choose to do I don't think there's anything in it that merits being written off as bad fish handling. The fish weren't being suspended in the air from the fly, they weren't being dragged over rocks, and so on. The underwater footage was gorgeous (esp. the last one), and I enjoyed the video a lot.

    I will say this regarding my fish handling: I lost my forceps and I forgot to pinch my barbs down--something I normally do to my trout/grayling flies. I make a conscious effort to handle fish as little as possible.
