That is not at all what I said. I said, hero shots are boring. Doesn't mean they can't document a cool moment, or a punctuate a great fishing trip, but the hero shot is a boring photo. You could have a perfectly composed and edited hero shot, it is still boring. Is it cool to catch a new fish species? Absolutely. Just don't expect anyone that isn't an angler to give a fuck. The best response you'll get from a non-angler is, "Nice fish dude." Whether it is a cell phone snapshot or the best composition you got from a medium format DSLR.
Dude, bro, come on... Boring and interesting are not things that are set in stone or defined by you. Hero shots typically display a beautiful fish, emotion from the angler, maybe a cool landscape, etc. I find that 100x more interesting than most of the content on IG. You aren't the authority on what people can find interesting.
