You guys obviously had to be gear fishing. No self-respecting fly fisherman would put his grimy hands into the "lungs" of a fish and let it bleed everywhere. Worse--take a picture and put it on the internet for everyone to see. That's disgusting and shameful.
At least that's what I would say if I was someone who cared. Nice fish!!! Were you guys motoring or floating? With a guide? I want to go to Alaska. Congrats.
