76 F in February!?

#1 Post by GunnyMack » Wed Feb 21, 2018 6:07 pm

Blue bird skies, 76 degrees here today.
I decided to put my fly rod together and go hit the river.
Lost 2 wild browns, each about 5-6" long. But I finally caught and landed a decent rainbow about 12-14". I try my best to not handle trout so all ya get are net pics!

Nice fish - but I'm curious why you try to avoid handling trout - unless (of course) you're doing "catch & release".

Catch & release is what one of my friends seems to do with deer..... ;) . :mrgreen:

Ever see charlie brown fly a kite or place kick a football in the Sunday comics ? Well that is how I hunt deer....I invented the sport of shoot and release deer hunting....

When the kids were little and were asked what they aspired to be when they grew-up they would often reciprocate the question and ask me the same....
My reply would always be " all I want to be when I grow up is a consistently successful deer hunter! " .... For many years, until nearly adulthood, they thought that that was a viable, prosperous vocational possibility.....

Sorry to drift Mack....nice trout....and I certainly understand the hesitancy of handling them....the one and only one I have ever caught I handled and unhooked just like any other fish and, though I was gentle, the live release was unsuccessful....
m.A.g.a. !

Yes I'm all catch and release. I have killed more than my share of fish over the years.

Now shoot & release deer hunting sounds like REAL sport! Yeah I've lost a few over the years but most went into the freezer!!
